WS 2019/20

Duration: 1 semester


RWTH Aachen University will be 150 years old next year. There will be various events to mark this anniversary, including a special exhibition at the Centre Charlemagne from May to August 2020. We are participating in this exhibition with a contribution that we will jointly create in the research field.

With the topic "150 Years of RWTH" we will examine the structural and spatial development of the university since its foundation until today, the interaction between RWTH, city and urban society as well as the impact of the university on its environment. On the basis of existing studies, we will evaluate and select additional map and image material in archives, develop forms of presentation, draw plans and graphics for various periods and comment on them with short texts.
