The main task of architects is planning, drafting, designing, and executing the construction of buildings.

Creative design constitutes the main focus of the Architecture degree programme at the TU Darmstadt. There are other constructive, artistic, and historical-scientific areas arranged around it. This links systematic knowledge transfer and creative-playful elements. Building construction and urban development are considered an entity. These areas are: Historical fundamentals, Design and presentation, Construction and Technology, Building Planning as well as Urban development.

In the focus of teaching of every semester, there is a central drafting project that is directly or indirectly related to a majority of the other courses of that semester. This project will be designed in turns by the Departments of Interior Design, Building Construction, Building Theory, and Urban Development.
