The chair focuses on the architectonic designs to heritage with the scientific research as starting point. Programme, design concept and elaboration of the design proceed from the analyses of the original building and its context from an architectonic, cultural-historical and technological angle. The chair prioritises the research questions for this and is receptive to the research results. The expertise of the entire section is primarily focused on the architectonic design as ‘end product’. Filling the design chair is an extension of this.
