4th Science Day 2015

The 4th Science Day, that took place at the "Recycling Mies Pavillion" on June 25th, was particularly oriented towards those interested in doctoral studies, students, and doctoral candidates in architecture and urban and landscape planning. Speakers selected through an international call presented their research ideas within one subject area, which were discussed by the audience and with invited experts.

The broad spectrum of the Science Day, which includes three different subject areas that were equally discussed and compared, contributes to the ability to examine the diversity of research content and methods in architecture, urban and landscape planning and use these.

The Science Day "Designing Research" was a collaborative effort of the RWTH Aachen Faculty of Architecture, initiated by Dr. Linda Hildebrand, junior professor of reuse in architecture; Dr.-Ing. Carola Neugebauer, junior professor of cultural heritage; and Dipl.-Ing. Carolin Stapenhorst Ph.D., junior professor of tool-culture.
