Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will:
_        have knowledge about design theory and methods
_        be able to develop a building of simple complexity methodically, analytically and creatively.
_        be able to create a concept for a building, transform it into a spatial and typological organization and present it in a model using concept and design plans.
Personal competence:
_        Develop and train basic architectural language competence.
_        Develop and train decision-making skills both individually and in a team.
_        Develop and train the ability to present results in analogue or digital form.
_        Develop the ability to exercise and accept critique and to discuss the results of this.

Module content:
_        The design process for a small building with a simple spatial program is comprised of 3 steps: Analysis, concept development, design.
_        Initially, location aspects are examined, exemplary buildings are analyzed and the information derived on the basis of the task is studied, leading to the functional and creative design of the building. The design process and the result are then documented and presented using the appropriate media.
