IoA Institute of Architecture

University of Applied Arts Vienna

Welcome

The goal of the Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and of its Deans Hani Rashid and Klaus Bollinger  is to teach architecture as an all-inclusive thought process that puts the future architect in the position to define architecture as a three-dimensional expression of culture. To achieve this, the three design studios of Kazuyo Sejima, Greg Lynn and Hani Rashid closely work together with specialists in the departments of technology, theory and editing within our institute, as well as with specialists from reputable external organizations.

This potential for interaction is realized in closely networked teams that are kept comparatively small to facilitate the transfer of knowledge. In computerlabs and state-of-the-art model shops, the latest technologies are tested in theory and practice. The continuous necessity of re-defining architecture both in theoretical and practical terms should be the main focus of teaching.

4. Panel Discussion "Built/Unbuilt Vol.02" with Marie-Therese Harnoncourt and Barbara Imhof

Moderation: Bence Pap, Assistant at Studio Greg Lynn, Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts Vienna

University of Applied Arts Vienna, Lichthof B
Stubenring 3, 1010 Vienna

The “Built and Unbuilt” cluster will highlight positions of spatial production, as understood in the environment of an architectural practice. Architects today work in a network of professionals and tackle various scales of operation within their responsibility. The work ranges from urban design and thinking about future scenarios of the city, to products and everything in between. We have entered the fourth industrial revolution of the information age which holds new challenges for our profession. The session will discuss and elaborate diverse approaches to architectural production and expression and coming demands of our discipline.

Following we would like to invite you to a small reception.

The Making of ... Architectural Theory with Nicole Stöcklmayr, December 6, 7.30pm

The Making of ... Architectural Theory with Nicole Stöcklmayr, December 6, 7.30pm

The lecture focuses on the materiality of the wall by presenting and exploring some pivotal scenes from BBC's television series "Sherlock" (2010-present). In particular, it analyses how different types of walls not only serve as a background for the episodes' scenes, but also have an agency and are directly involved in action and interaction within the visual, auditory, and spatial narrative. The fundamental question behind the examination of the particular material qualities of the wall as a building element and as part of the film plot is how we can deal with theory and discuss architecture as a cultural production today. The documentation of the construction process (research, writing, and rendering) of an essay on walls will be part of this presentation on the making of architectural theory.

Nicole Stoecklmayr is a writer and lecturer in history & theory of architecture, media studies, and design. She holds a Ph.D. in cultural studies from the University of Applied Arts Vienna where she also graduated with a degree in architecture. Her research and publications focus on mediums of architecture (e.g. drawings, models, buildings, computer simulations) as well as architecture in media (e.g. movies, TV shows, games). She was Research Associate at MECS Institute for Advanced Study on Media Cultures of Computer Simulation, Research Fellow at IKKM Internationales Kolleg für Kulturtechnikforschung und Medienphilosophie, and taught at Leuphana University of Lüneburg and Bauhaus-University Weimar. In addition to her academic work, she also runs scenesofarchitecture.com, a blog dedicated to the architectural in movies, television series, and games.
