Research Field Sustainable Architecture and Smart Buildings

The research field deals with the analysis and development of sustainable building. Special needs, such as those of elderly people, children or people with disabilities, are taken into account. Project development and process management of public construction projects are a central component of this research field. In addition, we are exploring options for densification of metropolitan areas and diversity methods for planning processes in sustainable urban development.

In this context, this also includes aspects of energy-optimized design of buildings and the resource-saving use of building materials and types.
