Technische Universitat Darmstadt, Germany

Darmstadt is a medium-size city located in Germany's busy Rhein-Main 
region. It is home of over 30 research institutions, including the 
Technische Universität Darmstadt, where the AOSD Summer School will take 

But Darmstadt is not only known as a city of science, but also
for its notable architecture. While the Mathildenhöhe is the
centerpiece of an ensemble of so-called Jugendstil buildings
from the the early 20th century, only recently the Waldspirale,
designed by the Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser,
has been added to Darmstadt's skyline. And visible from atop
the Waldspirale are the skyscrapers of Frankfurt, the region's
biggest city, and a mere 30 km to the north of Darmstadt.
