The design project is about building in a extreme situation, in respect to climate, location and function. Essence is the interaction between the extreme circumstances, the technical solutions, and the architecture. Extreme circumstances do request technical solutions which will be the starting point for the design development. The designer has to direct the 'engineer questions and answers', towards the articulation of the form which is based on integration of aesthetics and technology. 

"Die Architectur des 21 Jahrhunderts hat ihre Unschuld verloren, Gebaude mussen etwas leisten" Stefan Behnisch

In the end the student is able to understand technical solutions, to reflect on them, to applicate them and to transform them. And the student is able to design a coherent design result.
