Modern History of Sustainable Architecture (ARC 368R/388R)
Technologies and Techniques of Sustainable Design (ARC 350R/ARC 386M)
These two integrated seminars on sustainable architecture and design are designed to give students a deep insight into the cultural history of sustainable design in Germany and its direct application at a variety of scales.
Due to the unique location of the summer session, the students will experience alternative models of urban planning and mixed-use developments. They will experience various forms of public space, private and public transport, and sustainable planning and design in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
Most importantly is to experience life as a Munich resident while living in one or more apartments of different characteristics and locations throughout the city.
While most of the time during the week the program will be located in Munich, but the group will also travel to places such as Stuttgart, Freiburg, Regensburg, and to the Alps with Mittenwald, Garmisch Partenkirchen, and Innsbruck, Austria. Typically, most weekends are free for individual or small group student travel.
