Tech­nis­che Uni­ver­si­tät Ber­lin, Fac­ulty VI Plan­ning Build­ing Envir­on­ment, Insti­tute of Archi­tec­ture, offers an open pos­i­tion of a

Uni­versity Pro­fess­or­ship – salary grade W3

in “Archi­tec­ture, Build­ing Tech­no­logy and Sys­tems”.

Work­ing field:

The Insti­tute of Archi­tec­ture is part of Fac­ulty VI - Plan­ning Build­ing Envir­on­ment - and is organ­ized into 19 pro­fess­or­ships. The Insti­tute is involved in teach­ing in the degree pro­grams in Archi­tec­ture (bach­elor’s and mas­ter’s), Urban Design, and His­toric Build­ing Research.

The cent­ral task of the pro­fess­or­ship for Archi­tec­ture, Build­ing Tech­no­logy and Sys­tems lies in the teach­ing and research of future tech­no­logy sys­tems as a hol­ist­ic­ally inter- and trans­dis­cip­lin­ary-planned com­pon­ent in archi­tec­tural design. In addi­tion to energy, the trans­form­a­tion of tech­no­logy sys­tems is also a key issue at a time when we are hav­ing to adapt to cli­mate change and the scarcity of resources.

In teach­ing, com­puls­ory and com­puls­ory elect­ive courses are to be taught in archi­tec­ture pro­grams (bach­elor’s and mas­ter’s), look­ing in par­tic­u­lar at the design of archi­tec­tures of trans­form­a­tion with a focus on tech­no­logy sys­tems.

In the field of research, archi­tec­tures and build­ing sys­tems of trans­form­a­tion for dif­fer­ent cli­mates and cul­tures are to be developed in cooper­a­tion with other pro­fess­or­ships and insti­tutes at Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin and bey­ond.
