Interdisciplinary Factory Planning
Master's Course Architecture Project M1
A factory’s planning process is characterized by a high degree of complexity, especially due to the collaboration of planners from numerous disciplines. Prospective architects and engineers are usually not adequately prepared for these challenges. This master’s course intends to prepare students of architecture, mechanical engineering and civil engineering for the upcoming challenges in factory planning by tasking them with the concept and design of a factory-extension and an administrative building for the company Kaldewei, one of the worlds’ leading manufacturers for enameled bathtubs, washbasins and shower surfaces. The project is being carried out in interdisciplinary teams which results in a highly dynamic, almost realistic planning process.
