Foundations of Design

Intensive and interdisciplinary foundation studies are the hallmark of the HfG programme. They determine the HfG’s specific curricular model and are a major reason for the high quality of the design courses in Schwäbisch Gmünd. The foundation courses establish a firm basis for creative competence in design activities and establish a reliable repertoire of methods, aesthetic experiences, and techniques. The foundation studies systematically examine the laws of surface and space, light and colour, time and movement.

The foundation studies impart reliable constants in problem solving strategies with increasingly complex questions.

Projects from the foundations studies you find here. Since 2011 the HfG awards the "Karl-Gerstner-Preis" to students with outstanding programme achievements.
