Institute of Architecture and Planning

The Institute of Architecture and Planning at the University of Liechtenstein can look back on a tradition of more than half a century.

 This means that the Institute benefits from continuity and from a multifarious global network, which is reflected in the international composition of the student body. In recent decades architectural teaching has undergone a radical shift from ‘mere’ building towards engagement with the economically, ecologically and socially relevant themes of sustainable building. The role of architecture today is increasingly seen in combination with the concept of planning. The term is associated with the totality of all the processes currently running in a given area, and their interaction with the environment. This entails a principal focus on the interface of spatial planning and sustainable economic and cultural effects.
