The Institute of Urban Design and Landscape Architecture at the Faculty of Architecture and Planning at the Technische Universität Wien, lead by Markus Tomaselli, works on issues of urban spaces in a global context. The urban planning department, lead by Christoph Luchsinger, focuses on the spatial, architectural, and the development of urban design through the lense of historical, cultural, social, political and economic dimensions.
Urbanism is a way of architecturally thinking and interpreting relationships. This concerns teaching and research alike. Therefore, from the point of view of urban planning, there is only one “unité de doctrine“: coherence and intelligence – and this as elegant and beautiful as possible.
