Habitat Unit

Studying at Habitat Unit during the Corona pandemic

The global pandemic of the Corona virus has caused major disruptions to public and private life and creates many challenges for organising university life in the coming weeks and months. Thus the teaching programme of the summer semester 2020 will be held online. You will find general information on the homepages of the Institute for Architecture and TU Berlin.
