The Chair is part of the department of Urban Design and Planning of the faculty of Architecture and Landscape, and of the research initiative TRUST transdisciplinary and historical, rural and urban, spatial transformation and development.


Description of Competences – referring to the Project

The Chair for Regional Building and Urban Planning's focus in urbanism and architecture addresses rural-urban interfaces, building culture, vernacular intelligence, and rural areas; the experience of the Chair's researchers include projects with Technische Universität München (e.g. for AlpHouse with the Bavarian Chamber of Architects), and for other international projects.
