Careers The Façade Design Program is one of the two specialization areas of the general MSc Building Technology track. at Detmold School of Architecture and Interior Design.FAÇADE DESIGN MASTER “A growing complexity of design and building processes require increased specialisation of important areas of architecture. safety. Within this context. have to fulfill several technical and architectural demands and functions related to a broad range of aspects and engineering disciplines. by participating in international symposia and workshops. fabrication and assembly of façades. International network Within the Façade Design Program the Faculty of Architecture also works with partner universities in Germany (Detmolder Schule für Architektur) and Switzerland (Luzerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts).Department of Building Technology . Key topics are energy consumption and sustainability. A façade defines not only a building’s appearance and its architectural expression. Link to practice Due to the cooperation. You may also choose to start your own business or Façade Mercedes Benz Museum. the International Façade Master offers ideal advanced education for individual positioning and future-oriented specialisation within the field of architecture. Not only because the facade coins the perception and design of architecture. materialization. for example. students also benefit from close links with professional practice.

Hereby.“ Marco Hemmerling (Prof.will teach MSc candidates how to design and develop façade structures on an academic level. but also how well it functions.

This is structured as an integrated design process driven by quantitative performance evaluations on three aspects: structure. During this year a wide range of theory and integrated design components are covered related to different disciplines such as mechanics. compuScheme of Msc track Building Technology and Architectural Engineering tation and modeling and production techniques. This specialization focuses on architecture and engineering as the inseparably linked basis for building design.

Second year At the end of the second semester students will have to make their final choice for one of the 3 4 . students work on the spatial-functional design of a building in applying building system integration from concept phase on. components and (sub)systems of building structures. The other specialization is Research & Design. product development. Quantitative research relates to acoustic. they move on to a final design in drawings. In the first semester. climate and construction. ‘Component & System design’ focuses on system development of a façade in the context of a building design. ‘Building Design’. focuses on the innovative and sustainable design of elements. building physics. The Building Technology track. In the second semester. In addition to this track the Department of Building Technology of the TU/ Faculty of Architecture also offers the specialization Architectural Engineering. which focuses on materials. Students start the design process by developing an innovative concept in the form of a programmatic and visual scenario. material science. consisting of these two specializations. climate and sustainability or product development. heat transfer and structural performance as input. quantitative performance studies.MASTER PROGRAM The Façade Design Program is one of the two specializations of the MSc Building Technology track at Delft University of Technology. The first year forms the basis for the specialized in-depth studies of the second year.
