The model as a means of communication
Modell+Design offers students the opportunity to deal in-depth with model design and its implementation. Ideas become visible on the basis of models: design and craftsmanship, theory and practice are worked on together. The models take up a clear creative position and communicate what has been thought of both within and outside the discipline. Questions about abstraction, reduction, materiality, materiality, construction and technical implementation are always answered on the model.

The aim of the course is the development of intelligent solutions for handicapped-accessible (if necessary, wheelchair accessible) usable, smallest possible housing units. Depending on the design idea, this can be done in different scales: beginning with the entire construction (from public to private areas) through the layout of the floor plan to the 1:1 detail solution. Together we will decide which model form best communicates the developed ideas, whereby accessibility will be a natural part of the design task.
