Faculty VI Planning Building Environment

Technical University of Berlin (TU Berlin)

School Website

The Institute of Architecture (IfA) at Technische Universität Berlin is committed to excellence in both teaching and research. This commitment derives from the fact that architecture is nothing less than the cultural technique that people use to create a livable environment according to needs that differ in nature. With this in mind, architecture comprises the design of all areas of life and by no means ends with the built object. The Institute of Architecture is therefore of great importance, especially for a technical university. Only through being transferred into architecture and an actual building, can different technologies become culturally productive and unfold their effectiveness in everyday life.

TU Berlin has a long and rich tradition and is recognized globally as an excellent research university. Our goal is to continue to develop science and technology for the benefit of our society. The members of the university are wholly committed to the principle of sustainable development which tackles contemporary challenges without further burdening future generations. For us, research and teaching are insep-arably linked.


Using innovative, technology-oriented and holistic methodologies we are contributing to the shaping of a better future. We are fully aware of our responsibility vis-à-vis society – not only due to our history – but also because we must uphold ethical and humanistic oriented standards in our research and teaching endeavors.


It is against this background that research and teaching in the natural, planning and engineering sciences are inextricably linked with the humanities and social sciences. All our research and teaching activities serve civilian purposes exclusively.


Our university members are actively engaged in promoting equal opportunity between women and men and in creating family-friendly study and working conditions. We strive to ensure equal opportunity and non-discrimination at all levels of the university organization. In our teaching and research we also explicitly embrace the plurality of world views and diverse ways of life.


Teaching and academics


TU Berlin is an attractive educational institution in which students acquire the academic and social competencies they will need for their careers and to actively shape the society of the future.


The broad range of subjects offered by TU Berlin provides students a transdisciplinary scientific education, which in turn is an expression of the universityʼs societal and global responsibilities.


Continuing education in science is an integrative component of university training and enables lifelong learning.


We are open to the concept of innovation as the basis for constantly impro-ving our university. We are continuously refining the quality of instruction by promoting dialogue between our teachers and students, in addition to developing further options that can ensure the ongoing professionalization of our academic staff.
