Architecture/Faculty

The Institute of Urban and Architectural History teaches the fundamentals of the history of art, architecture, cities and design. The topic at the centre of the lectures is the role and tasks of architects from the mid-18th century to the present day. In our practical exercises we develop the skills of seeing, describing and understanding historic architecture. In the Master's degree programme the institute is responsible for the required course in Urban Research and a variety of elective courses in Documentation of Cultural Heritage, Buildings Research, Damage Analysis and Conservation of Monuments. Our research focuses on the fields of regional building traditions, development in contracting and peripheral regions and several topics from Central and South-eastern Europe.
