What is Research in Architecture? This book is a response to fundamental questions about the rise of research practices in architecture. A range of projects initiated at the School of Architecture at the Technische Universität Berlin demonstrate research trajectories that cumulatively formulate an integrative vision of how knowledge gathering and production can impact our lived-in environments. Four strategic research clusters – City, Energy, Heritage, and Research by Design – provide a framework for both fundamental and applied research. Contributions include the works of teams headed by Raoul Bunschoten, Finn Geipel, Peter Herrle, Susanne Hofmann, Regine Leibinger and many others.
