St. Remaclus in Cochem – Ein Kirchenbau von Emil Steffann und Heinz Bienefeld


The church of St. Remaclus rises above the banks of the Moselle in Cochem-Cond in an impressive location – opposite the Reichsburg Cochem. The church was built between 1964 and 1968 by the architects Emil Steffann and Heinz Bienefeld in a seemingly timeless design language.

Within the framework of the research field, the architecture of the church is to be prepared for casual visitors to the site in such a way that their perception is directed to unexpected special features of the church building and the church remains in their memory as a worthwhile destination. For this purpose, for example, a (weatherproof) site model could be created that illustrates the remarkable juxtaposition of castle and church at first glance. Another possibility would be to design an entertaining architectural discovery trail around and through the church of St. Remaclus. There are hardly any limits to creativity here.

The two 6 CP research field topics are scheduled for one semester. With a workload of 30 time hours per CP, this corresponds to a weekly working time of 8 to 10 hours per week to be spent on the research field. Please take this into account when registering.

The research field is advertised for one person. However, there is also the possibility of participation of a team of 2 persons experienced in collaboration, for which one person can register as a substitute. In this case, please contact the lecturer by March 25 2022 with your request in addition to the registration in RWTHonline.
