Learning outcomes:
Based on a basic understanding of objects and space, students will familiarize themselves with the field of temporary construction.
After successfully completing this module, students will have acquired analytical, typological and constructive knowledge and be able to translate this into creative design concepts. Students will be able to recognize the fundamentally different requirements for temporary structures. The goal is to provide answers to specific questions from the field of temporary construction based on a selection of learned or found solutions.
In this context the aspect of “appropriateness” plays a major role.
