International Study Program / Kompaktseminare


As of 2006, the Department of Architecture at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar is offering the new international and interdisciplinary master program "Imagining the World - Imagineering the Other". The program is financed for three years by the DAAD and will be jointly organized between the Chair for Architecture Theory at Bauhaus and the Chair for East Asian History, Prof. Reinhard Zöllner, University of Erfurt. 

 There are a total of six Schools involved, besides Weimar and Erfurt two Japanese (Waseda University, Tokyo, and Yokohama National University), and two Korean Schools (Yonesei University and Kyongi University, Seoul).

The program is concerned with the genesis and production of worldviews and world images, which, in the age of globalization and iconic turn, on one hand echo each other, but on the other hand cannot be interpreted without their cultural-historical background. In the connection of architecture theory, history, philosophy, and economy, image generation will be discussed in its practical as well as theoretical aspects. 

The international master program consists of three two-week modules in Weimar/Erfurt, Tokyo and Seoul. The first module will be organized by the chair of Design and Architecture Theory, and take place from April 24 to May 1, 2006 at the Bauhaus-University in Weimar. The remaining modules are scheduled for the end of august in Tokyo and October in Seul.
