Since then, diverse student workshops in Germany and Japan. In 2022, Prof. Watanabe's latest work was exhibited in the architecture building of the TU Berlin
Cooperation partner: Prof. Dr. Iris Aravot, Prof. Dr. Aaron Sprecher
Cooperation in the field of research, teaching and exchange of students and lecturers. Research cooperation within the framework of the MISTI research project together with the MIT (Prof. Jarzombek). Every summer semester, as part of an Erasmus grant applied for by the Department of Architectural Theory, two lecturers from the Technion come to the Institute of Architecture to conduct seminars and workshops under the supervision of the Department of Architectural Theory. Among the guest lecturers were bis Shulamit Beimel, Dr David Behar, Dr Keren Shoham, Dr Idit Ran-Shachnai and Oren Ben Avraham. Diverse publication and conference projects to date. Prof. Gleiter was Chairman of the Evaluation Committee of the Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning in 2018.
Cooperation partner: Prof. Ilaria Valente, Prof. Manuel Blanco
Cooperation within the Alliance4Tech cooperation between the Politecnico di Milano, ETSAM (Madrid) and the Institute of Architecture (Berlin). The cooperation goes back to an initiative of Prof. Ilaria Valente (Milan), Prof. Manuel Blanco (Madrid) and Prof. Gleiter from 2019. The cooperation provides for an annual exchange of up to 10 students from each university, in addition to cooperation in the field of research and teaching. In September 2022, Madrid hosted the first of the annual A4Tech Summer Schools, in September 2023, the A4Tech Summer School will be held in Berlin, and in 2024 in Milan. Prof. Gleiter was Visiting Professor at DASTU - Dipartimento di Architettura e Studi Urbani - in the winter semesters 2021/22 and 2022/23.
Cooperation partners: Prof. Alessandro Armando, Prof. Giuseppe Durbiano
Since 2017, there has been close cooperation between the Department of Architectural Theory and the DAD Dipartimento di Architettura e Design, Prof. Alessandro Armando and Prof. Giuseppe Durbiano. In addition to an Erasmus programme, there is close cooperation in the areas of research, teaching and publications. teaching and publications. Prof. Gleiter was curator of the journal Ardeth No 7/2021, an interview with Prof. Armando and Prof. Durbiano appeared in the journal Die Architekt 4/2022, curated by Prof. Gleiter and Dr. Lidia Gasperoni, on the topic A Theory of the Architectural Project.

Summer semester 2022, Architectural Design Workshop — Augmented Historical Pedagogies: Tiergarten’s Hidden Urban Narratives
Augmented Historical Pedagogies: Tiergarten’s Hidden Urban Narratives is a collaborative workshop bringing together three institutions: the MIT Department of Architecture, the Institute for Architecture at TU Berlin, and The Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning at the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology. The collaboration will foster a VR- and AR-based, interdisciplinary study of the Tiergarten, Berlin’s largest park and a site which has undergone unique historical transformations. Because of its complex history, not just in field of architecture and urban planning, but also within the history of film, literature, politics, zoology, hydrology, and botanics, Tiergarten is an exemplary location for a critical exploration of the ways through which urban history is written and produced.
In addition to engaging with the site’s history through readings and archival research, students will use advanced simulation techniques–such as environmental sensing, laser scanning, and photogrammetry–as well as game engines, and produce immersive representations of Tiergarten. These projects, virtual- and augmented-reality installations, will be conceived as digital spaces that present the multiplicity of the park’s historical narratives through a variety of mediums, techniques and materials. The aim is not to make a passive reconstruction, but to use these digital spaces as the sites for insightful historical investigations. The final results, a collection of virtual tours and ‘incisions’ through the layers of knowledge and representation, aim to provoke discussion not just about Tiergarten’s past, but also about a re-envisioned future.
