During this winter term the “impromptu design project” is set up in two staged. First, the participants are supposed to analyze in written form an already publicized text of their own choice about a built architecture.

Secondly, on basis of this analysis they are requested to compose their own small architecture criticism of the chosen building. The short pointed messages of the online magazine “BauNetz” may help as inspiration and as an orientation for the formal structure. So the written criticism should have at least 2.000 indices and should not exceed more than 6.000 indices including blank spaces.
