Games give us the opportunity to learn and communicate knowledge. Especially in the field of architecture and urban planning, these games can be used to integrate people into decision-making processes in a playful way.

In this course, we will explore the design and implementation of games that are entertaining, communicate knowledge, and allow people to gain new insights. We will look at various game concepts, from traditional games to learning games, serious games and gamification, which help facilitate work processes and make them more interesting.

In the process, we will learn how to conceptualize and implement your own games in the Unreal Engine! Independently or in a team, you will develop your own idea on the topic "Games for Architecture and Urban Planning", create graphics and models and program playful interactions.

You will receive regular mentoring and feedback to track your progress during the semester. And at the end of the semester, we will have the opportunity to present and play our own games together.

Previous Knowledge Expected

No previous knowledge is required for the course. An interest in gaming and knowledge of programming, modelling, and graphic design may be helpful but are not required.


In the seminar, the students learn to create their own playful virtual environments with the help of the real-time environment "Unreal Engine", which can be used to convey knowledge about architecture and urban planning to other people and to integrate them into the processes.
