This work was awarded with the "Daniel Gössler Belobigung" for outstanding work in architectural theory.
In his master's thesis, Lukas Großmann asks: How do we treat minorities and marginalized groups? And how can architecture contribute to changing society? Specifically, the author is concerned with marginalized groups such as delinquents, the sick, the poor, strangers, "lunatics and fools" - and the institutionalization that manifests itself analogously in building typologies of prisons, hospitals, poorhouses, refugee shelters and much more. "The author begins with a convincing historical analysis of hospitality, its institutionalization and service-like building typology since antiquity. In doing so, he takes into account different interests with consequences for architectural theory: The contexts, how they are interpreted and instrumentalized, are excellently revealed in the work,"
- the jury's verdict.
