In research and teaching, the Institute Integrative Design | Masterstudio develops innovative design solutions, taking into consideration their social ramifications.

The activities at the Institute stand for a practice that brings together the knowledge of different subject fields, the arts, science and technology, in a joint creative process.

Against this backdrop we develop innovative design solutions for a wide range of problems. Every solution is based on an understanding of systems, networks, cycles and value chains in collaboration with the specific stakeholders. This integrative understanding of practice forms the basis of the Institute’s approach to teaching and research. With our Masterstudio we provide a trans-disciplinary MA programme in Design that offers designers from different fields and related scientific disciplines new perspectives for their future professional career.

In research we focus on subject fields in which the transformation potential of integrative thinking and acting creates new application possibilities. We thereby rely on methods that allow us to fuse theoretical understanding with technical potentialities and design-related knowledge to create new application options and produce innovative results.
