8. Architecture – Ben van Berkel and Dr. Johan Bettum
The Städelschule Architecture Class (SAC) offers a two-year, postgraduate Master of Arts programme with the option of three different specializations: Advanced Architectural Design, Architecture and Performative Design or Architecture and Critical Spatial Practice. All students go through the same training during the first year of studies before choosing one of the specializations for their Master thesis that is produced during the second year.
The theoretical and practical courses of SAC consist of lectures, seminars, workshops, studio-crits and a variety of events focusing on select architectural topics. During the second year, each specialization offers its respective programme to its participating students.
SAC provides an intense research setting for the creative exploration of current architectural issues. The aim of the programme is to contribute to the general advance of architecture while preparing its students for academic and/or professional excellence where their individual resources and talents contribute to the field in practical, intellectual and creative terms.
Dr. Mark Wigley and Dr. Beatriz Colomina teach theory seminars to the first year students.
Dr. Mark Fahlbusch from Bollinger+Grohmann Ingenieure will be offering consultancy in structural design.
Advanced Architectural Design – Christian Veddeler SAC’s specialization, Advanced Architectural Design (AAD) is devoted to building design as the crucible of architectural practice and discourse. It engages with architecture as the sensual and critical interplay of individual and collective imaginations, material forms and inhabitable space, as well as flows of technologically mediated processes and effects and design intelligence. AAD sees architectural design as a vital and vanguard force in the transformation and future of urban culture, capable of responding to and staging individual and collective interests, private and public desires as well as social and political realities.
Architecture and Performative Design – Mirco Becker Architecture and Performative Design (APD) is informed by a range of material, constructional, manufacturing and environmental considerations and technologies. The performance of an architectural design is conceived in its ability to incorporate various requirements resulting from programmatic, functional, structural and environmental aspects in a synergetic and fruitful manner. This specialization focuses on how computational techniques and processes are changing the methodological and strategic make-up of architectural design by linking projective and analytical phases informed by technical data in the work process.
Architecture and Aesthetic Practice – Dr. Johan Bettum und Dr. Daniel Birnbaum Architecture and Aesthetic Practice (AAP) explores architecture in relation to the arts and uses speculative theory and practice within the arts to infuse architectural design with original and contemporary ideas and work strategies. Across the different disciplines of the arts, intense discourses are entertained that relate intimately to architecture. These address forms of representation, the role of technology in society, gender issues, questions of presence and absence in spatio-temporal terms, political life in various forms, and so much more. AAP uses these relationships for the similarities and differences that they establish with architecture to animate inquiries into architectural specific conditions. The specialization ingests select critical inquiries, paradigmatic positions and methodological practices in the arts to fully mold them as means for contributing to architectural thinking and design.
Architecture and Urban Design – Peter Trummer Architecture and Urban Design (AUD) centers on architecture and the city, investigating the various relationships and possibilities that the contemporary city presents architecture with. The contemporary city, whether small or large, is comprised of an intricate web of individual and collective interests and forces that arise from economical, environmental, social, cultural and other currents and changes. The impact on architecture is massive, and buildings can no longer only be read against local contexts but must seen as intricate parts of a global mesh of material and immaterial flow. AUD explores architectural design as field of creative opportunity within this radically changing field.
