Covering the core of the architectural profession: How to make a good building?
The unique fusion of architecture and technology is the driving force behind the innovative strength of ADE. The chair works from the assumption that good architecture comes into being when architectural design and technical virtuosity merge harmoniously. Key research areas include sustainable concepts, shifting typologies, new building technologies and exploring the power of materiality within architectural design.
ADE focuses on making architecture. Conceiving buildings that are good on a real as well as a conceptual level. The Chair focuses on engaged architecture: innovative, smart, applicable. At ADE we passionately propagate the reciprocity of design and making. Design practice, technology & engineering are carefully and harmoniously integrated, from a human and environmental perspective.
