The growth of cities worldwide imposes increasing demands on public infrastructure, and educational buildings constitute one component of that infrastructure. Renowned theorists and design professionals will convene in Vienna this fall to explore architectural responses to these demands.

The Urban Inquiry places special emphasis on careful use of resources, with respect to both life-cycle energy and land use. In addition, it examines how intensified use of educational buildings can contribute to a city’s vibrancy. These endeavors can best be achieved through concepts that incorporate and refurbish existing buildings, or, in the case of new construction, allow for future adaptation and conversion. The themes are both tangible and intangible, and the emphasis is on presenting a synthesis of theory and practice.

The Urban Inquiry aims to provide the basis for public debate on the role of the public sector in the future of educational buildings, and, at the same time, to focus attention on matters of urban design. The symposium seeks to foster the discourse on the future of educational buildings. To this end, lectures will be held on the synergy of design and educational theory, the functional program, typology, and urbanistic aspects. These lectures will be complemented by presentations of buildings demonstrating corresponding principles. Following the lectures and discussions, we will give the invited guests the opportunity to visit Vienna’s newest and finest examples of educational buildings.

IoA Sliver Lecture Peter Mörtenböck, Nov. 22, 7pm

Lecture by Peter Mörtenböck
Beyond Architecture on Demand: Rethinking Urban Futures in the Age of Platforms

Peter Mörtenböck is Professor of Visual Culture at TU Wien, Director of the Centre for Global Architecture and Research Fellow at Goldsmiths College, University of London. His current work focuses on urban speculation, global resource consumption and new data publics. He is also developing new research around the notion of “Building Capital” – how architecture’s capacity to both materialise and signify the production of value is being enlisted in the creation of new geographies of investment. Mörtenböck has served as an external advisor and examiner at numerous universities and art schools. He has published more than 100 essays on contemporary art, architecture and visual culture in international journals such as Grey Room, Architectural Research Quarterly, Architectural Theory Review, Social Text and Third Text. Together with Helge Mooshammer, he is currently working on three major book publications – the edited volumes Data Publics: Public Plurality in an Era of Data Determinacy and Incorporating Informality as well as the forthcoming monograph Building Capital: Urban Speculation and the Architecture of Finance.
