About us

The History of the department dates back to the founding of the University of Karlsruhe in 1825. The tradition of the Karlsruhe department of Architecture includes numerous well-known names: from Friedrich Weinbrenner and Johann Gottfried Tulla to Heinrich Hübsch and personalities such as Egon Eiermann, Fritz Haller and Dieter Kienast. Today, 22 professors and a broad-based teaching staff guarantee practice-oriented and contemporary teaching for the approximately 1,000 students. The chairs are organized in four institutes: Design, Art and Theory, Design and Building Technology, Design of City and Landscape , and History of Art and Building. They offer a broad range of teaching with the possibility of setting one's own focal points. An international guest professorship expands the teaching offer every winter semester.
