Munich Plan

The Munich Plan is a research program, which examines the urban structuring of the city of Munich. Investigation and survey address the important role the ground floor zone plays as the link between urban space and building within the urban structure. The programme takes the form of an on-going survey to examine big parts of central Munich. As in the figure ground drawing of the Nolli Plan for Rome or Aldo Rossi’s plan of Zurich, the structure and evolution of the city lies at the centre of the study.

Each semester students examine an area of the city. Existing data is to retrieve, and site investigations and survey as a kind of street register are made to given guidelines. Significant emphasis is placed on the graphic representation and the analysis of the given block and especially careful made photographs show the urban reality. The art of research is central to this study and you have to be capable to analyse and photograph in the best way.
