Chair of Structural Design - Prof. Dr. Joseph Schwartz

The term “Structural Design” denotes the programmatic idea of a reconciliation between the disciplines of engineering and architecture through the reciprocal integration of load-bearing structure and design concept. This view of structural systems encourages a unified understanding of the interplay of form and load-bearing capacity – that is, an understanding of the formative effect of the active inner forces in the building structure and the targeted control of these forces.
