  • Digital: design with 2D and 3D draw­ings with the fol­low­ing com­puter-pro­grammes: Vec­tor­works, Auto­CAD, Rhino­ceros, 3D, Cinema4D, GIS / image pro­cessing / cre­ation of bro­chures, pub­lica-tions, exhib­i­tions and Inter­net pages / lay­out and present­a­tion tech­niques / para­met­ric de-sign/pro­gram­ming / build­ing mod­el­ling / exten­ded real­ity / vir­tual space
  • Hybrid: e.g. exper­i­mental design meth­ods such as aug­men­ted real­ity, cave auto­matic vir­tual envi-ron­ment / sim­u­la­tion of nat­ural phe­nom­ena such as wind cur­rents and solar radi­ation for land-scape archi­tec­ture drafts.
The applic­ant should be open-minded for and strongly inter­ested in research ques­tions and should have ideas for fur­ther research (devel­op­ment and use of new meth­ods, pub­lic­a­tions).
