Site

The analysis of the site is fundamental to the search for a design solution. The process takes on various facets: intuitively, on the one hand, by physically exploring a particular site and thereby evoking various associations, and, on the other hand, by analyzing the site’s history, urban development, ecology, sociology, morphology, etc. The interaction of these diverse facets combines to form an impression that is a precondition for the design itself. It then becomes interesting to see which aspect is chosen as a basis for the design, which story will be continued. An important aspect of teaching at the Chair is to heighten awareness of the various means of reading a site and to make such interpretation useable in practice. A fundamental aim of our research consists of examining and evaluating public space in terms of its qualities.
