Fields of study


Subject of the course is the interdependence of design with locality, materiality and social relations. We will focus on Trier as an example to examine the interdependence of the history and future of design which takes place IRL.

Why ceramics, why art deco, which is the next bottle for Riesling, where do we see Ungers, who rebuilt the famous castles, what is so special about Gothic type?

One typical way to understand locality and difference in design is to look into history and culture. We will take as well into consideration: built environment, natural and human geography, natural and human resources, industry and mobility.
We will study and learn by a combination of class-room meetings and field trips or excursions.
The course is taught in English. Everyone welcome who wants to gain an intercultural and international perspective on the wider region.

Meetings & Excursions: mostly Wednesday morning, Fridays and Saturdays. See detailed schedule.
