Department 11's primary field of interest is objects that define, furnish, and complement the architectonic space. The architectural scale range is developed based on a special ability to work innovatively, on a grand scale, by the standards of technological and perceptory parameters.
The Department’s shared frame of reference is an overriding, structural, visual angle, which ties the area together, across the boundaries of traditional fields of interest. This optical approach serves as a means to focus on the system, context, and entity in stead of solely singling out each individual object.
The Department focuses on special competencies within the following fields of interest: Industrial production, industrial graphics, cross-disciplinary collaboration, design theory and the tectonics of the system.
