Future-oriented architecture and urban design can only be based on sustainable concepts. Therefore, this is an important feature of our Green Architecture programme. We avoid one-sided considerations and expensive solutions for conventional concepts or restrictions on certain content, such as energy or natural building materials. Instead we focus on developing holistic concepts for each planning task.

The programme’s focus is to gain an understanding of the basics, identify possibilities, and use these concepts creatively to optimise their benefits. You will study the basic principles of architecture in relation to sustainable construction and environmental issues including: natural ecosystems, technical and natural cycles, nature within an urban space or urban ecology. This knowledge will help you to develop concepts to plan and design our future living spaces. Using these concepts, you will then learn about future planning and construction from urban spaces to construction products as well as how to implement this knowledge in practical projects. During your study you will start to understand the benefits of ecological planning and learn how to develop your own ideas to create holistic building concepts.

The study programme is suitable for students who want to expand their current activities or specialize in sustainable planning and construction. It is also appropriate for professionals who already work in this field and want to develop their professional career further. As additional benefit you will meet students from all over the world with diverse cultural background. You will be able to gain friends in foreign countries and to develop valuable international ties to different markets of the world that can form the foundation of your future international professional network.


Self-directed study
At the beginning of the semester you will receive your semester package containing all relevant study materials. This package contains technical books, textbooks, specially designed study guides and instructions as well as digital presentations from your lecturers. There are also other tools and resources you can use in your professional practice. Through the electronic availability of study materials we guarantee the local, temporal and technical independence of your distance learning study.

Seminars are organised at the beginning and the end of every semester, where you will have the opportunity to discuss in detail any issues with your lecturers, as well as build up a personal network within your study group. The seminars provide additional seminar-style adjusting of the study contents.

Telephone conferences
Telephone conferences generally assist the preparation and follow up of the seminars and discussions of examination performances. They are a good opportunity to discuss any issues with your lecturer and your study group.

The Online Campus is available for data exchange for the duration of your study. In your personal download section, you will receive all important teaching and study organisation information– it’s where all additional digital teaching materials are placed, as well as other tools and practical examples.

Group Work
Specific projects or homework is developed together in small study groups. On one hand this strengthens your contextual understanding while on the other it allows you to develop your social competence. In the end, the idea is that you are able to apply the knowledge you have acquired in specific examples.

Examination achievements and Master-Thesis
Each module ends with an exam. Your lecturer will inform you about the type of exam you will have to take at the start of the semester. They are generally written exams, homework or project work.

Study Locations
The seminars for the Master Green Architecture distance learning programme are held in various locations throughout Germany – generally in combination with module related excursions. Excursions provide a glimpse of what daily working practice is all about. The locations will be announced at the beginning of your studies. This rotation principle has been a great success (in our German language programme) and has been accepted and supported by the students. We would therefore like to continue it.
