The Master's track History of Architecture and Town Planning explores the evolution of cities, villages and park- and landscape design in Europe within the changing global setting.

Cities, buildings, parks and landscapes define the setting of our everyday life. Some are fascinating works of art, and no other human-made artefacts document the evolution of social relations, economic trends, technological innovations, philosophical views on humans and nature, politics and culture more eloquently than architecture and urbanism. The impact of cities and buildings on health is self-evident – urban planners gave us our sewage systems, architects decent public housing and healthcare buildings.

This track provides students a rich and varied introduction in the history and theory of architecture and urban planning. Since healthcare architecture requires a thorough understanding of the history and theory of architecture, and the world of healthy cities can only be analysed against the background of urbanism, the Expertise Centre Architecture, Urbanism and Health is embedded in a classical approach of architectural and urban history and theory. It allows students to specialise in classical history and theory, the health impacts of architecture and urbanism, or a mixture.
