Deepening of the designing and creative skills in urban and architectural design in the context of a research project (Research-led teaching).

Urban Lab

The city is known to grow. Most cities, especially in the third world and in the emerging markets, but also in Europe are overburden with this situation. It needs new ideas for further development. It needs more innovative ideas than current projects, for example in Dubai or Shanghai, who were presented aesthetically but do not include any visions.

Due to political and economic influences urban development has become an experimental ground without an urban entitlement to an overall concept. Today, for the most part no longer determine architects as cities could work and be designed, they can usually just design a building in a competition. There are no more visions, let alone utopias, such as those of Hilbersheimer (the Rationalistic City), Le Corbusier (the City for Three Million Inhabitants) and Cerda (Barcelona) and Haussmann (Paris), whose city ideas were actually implemented.

This studio presents itself as a city laboratory. Students should develop ideas for a specific location on how the city can be densified. New structures are needed. Urban design parameters such as infrastructure, functions, mobility, energy, etc., ought to be integrated and implemented into the designed urban landscape as a matter of course and also timeless.

The urban lab is the platform for sharing information and for ideas to be developed, for researching and discussing and for interdisciplinary working. The project is part of a research project (research- led teaching with practical relevance).

In recent decades there have been models like the "Compact City " in the 70s , the "Decentralization (Polycentricity)" in the 80s, the "Sustainable City in the 90s" and now the "Smart City", which requires the creation of innovations and the testing of new ideas. This applies to use it.

The projects serve as a collection of ideas for the selected city. A step in the right direction. Architects, in this case students of architecture perceive on the one hand their urban and architectural expertise and on the other hand they exert influence in urban development.

Basic research, brainstorming, design of the urban concept and the architectural design. Integration into the urban laboratory (platform for information exchange, discussion and research).

Design process and the consequential project. Presentation.
