In research and teaching, the Chair of Building Technology deals with the bidirectional field of tension between architectural and technological influences on the overall building system. and provides architectural and concrete technological answers to global issues such as climate change.
and the resulting questions to the architecture.
Core competences are the development of autoreagible and adaptive facades called smart skins, bidirectional real-time building automation called thinking building or smart building and bionic inspired building components.
Of particular interest is the implementation of the research and teaching results in real laboratories, this means the concrete physicalized transfer from the university teaching and research landscape into our built environment.
The chair is strongly involved in the teaching of the faculty and operates a 3D printing laboratory.
