Re: Futures Studio Hani Rashid, University of Applied Arts Vienna

Re: Futures: a compilation of five years of research conducted at Studio Hani Rashid, Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.Under the direction of architect and teacher Hani Rashid, the selected projects in this book address many of the significant and critical challenges that architects face and are set to confront with greater urgency as we head into the near and deep future.The works range from highly innovative architectural experimentation to large-scale sustainable urban interventions that focus on the possibilities and provocations of integrating new technological phenomena and capabilities into the design process.Through a collection of texts, digital and physical models, computer visualizations and drawings as well as large-scale installations and exhibitions, this research positions architecture as a discipline of increasing relevance in the decades to come.

Endless Kiesler

Endless Kiesler

Frederick Kiesler's Endless House is rightly regarded as an icon of 20th century  visionary architecture. Even though (and perhaps even because?) it was never built, the Endless House has been inspiring for people working in the field, spawning an ever-growing legacy. This publication brings together many hitherto unpublished drawings, plans and photographs, along with some recent reflections on Frederick Kiesler's central concepts. It also presents some of the work that has been done in Klaus Bollinger's "Unbuildable?!" seminar series at the Vienna University of Applied Arts Institute of Architecture. The publication is moreover, enriched by contributions from well-known architects and artist as well as winners of the renowned Kiesler Prize who have all engaged in a creative dialogue with Frederick Kiesler.

Fluid Totality Studio Zaha Hadid 2000-2015

Fluid Totality Studio Zaha Hadid 2000-2015

Fluid Totality collects 15 years of academic design research conducted at the Zaha Hadid masterclass at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. Under the leadership of Zaha Hadid and Patrik Schumacher the studio developed a distinct contribution to the emerging style of Parametricism. All elements of architecture become fluid, ready to engage with each other and with divers contexts leading to an overall intensifica- tion of relations. This style is architecture’s response to 21st Century network society.

The radicality and consistency with which this style is being pursued across all scales and programmes results in an impressive body of work. Academic design research can go deeper and farther than professional work in probing the consequences of a radical design hypothesis. Within academia architects can be more experimental. They can afford to be more principled and more self-critical, avoiding pragmatic com- promises. The creative work of the Zaha Hadid Vienna studio testifies to this.

Accompanied by essays: Zaha Hadid, Patrik Schumacher, Wolf Prix, Greg Lynn, Klaus Bollinger, Hani Rashid, Aaron Betsky, Joseph Giovannini, Brett Steele, Ali Rahim, Jesse Reiser, Hannes Traupmann, Mascha Veech and many others.

Massive Attack

Massive Attack

Massive Attack is an assembled and edited critical mass of lectures extracted from the IOA Sliver Series entitled, selected Friends and Enemies.  The lecturers include 24 leading architects, designers, critics, curators, and artists performing within the realm of the non-standard, at the extremities of their respective fields and viewpoints. The resulting spectrum of work ranges from innovative buildings, detailed aliens, bloated sculptures, scripted worlds, and atmospheric islands. The goal of the publication is tri-fold; to critically archive the series, frame insights to Vienna and the Institute of Architecture, and cross-pollinate ideas by looking at the series as a whole.  The publication oscillates between deep critical input and superficial glances, appealing to a broad user base.

Unbuildable Tatlin?!

Unbuildable Tatlin?!

Vladimir Tatlin’s Monument for the Third International (1919) is certainly one of the most significant projects of Soviet Constructivism. It is, however, not at all certain whether “Tatlin’s Tower” could even be built at all at the time it was originally planned. And whether it would be constructed today with the presently available means and possibilities of planning, calculating and processing materials is equally uncertain.

The seminar Structural Design 3 with Professor Klaus Bollinger focused on these reflections at the Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. The preliminary answers and assumptions are summed up in the present volume.

Complementing the works by students, texts by Klaus Bollinger, Frank Werner, Florian Medicus, Gabriele Werner, Georg Glaeser and Frank Gruber provide an overview of the theoretical, historical, constructive and geometric relevance of Vladimir Tatlin’s work and the architect’s intentions.

IoA Studios Hadid Lynn Prix Selected Student Works 2009

IoA Studios Hadid Lynn Prix Selected Student Works 2009

The renowned Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts Vienna presents selected student works from 2009. The design studios of star architects Zaha Hadid, Greg Lynn and Wolf D. Prix offer students countless possibilities to exhaust architectural parameters across borders. The open studio structure, which enables students to work on the same topics from their first term up to their graduation, creates dynamics, which would not be possible at this scale in a conventional study structure.

In addition to these three design studios the IoA offers the  Cross Over Studio, in 2009 headed by Francois Roche, which gives a small group of students access to external aspiring architects for one term further enhancing the already exceptional spectrum of projects.

The departments of Structural Design and Energy Design, with their advanced technologies, support the architectural education at the Angewandte.

The present pictures should serve as am inspiration and let us hope for a new dynamic generation of architects.

Prinz Eisenbeton 2

Prinz Eisenbeton 2

"Prinz Eisenbeton 2” is the third catalogue produced by the Wolf D. Prix master class at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna, and represents three years of debate on the problems facing architecture today. In addition to a generous presentation in illustrated form of projects, workshops, competitions and excursions giving an insight into the students’ eagerness to experiment, the texts of lectures given to back up the projects arranged each semester complete the broad spectrum of activities. At a time when the study of architecture is being revolutionized, this rich three-year compendium of the work of a master class conveys that it is innovative, experimental architecture that is being fought for.

Techo en Mexico -The Mexican Roof Revisited 2009

Techo en Mexico -The Mexican Roof Revisited 2009


In 2004, seven students from the studio of Wolf D. Prix at the Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts Vienna built a roof as an architectural landmark for a sustainable agriculture institution in the south of Mexico.

Five years later, the authors of the project met up with international architects in Oaxaca to discuss the relationship between aesthetics, resource awareness, and energy design in architecture at the “Sustainability versus Aesthetics” conference.

The publication summarizes the lectures given by Raimund Abraham, Rozana Montiel, Wolf D. Prix, Carl Pruscha, Michael Rotondi, Mauricio Rocha in autumn 2009, adding personal statements from all those involved. In their conversation on experimental building, Wolf D. Prix and Günther Feuerstein cover the period from the 1960s to realization of the “Techo en Mexico”.

Vienna Architecture Conference 2010 / Architecture Live 7

Vienna Architecture Conference 2010 / Architecture Live 7

In honor of one of the most visionary and progressive architects and theoretical thinkers of the in- ternational avant-garde— Raimund Abraham—the MAK, Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art, joined forces with the Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, to stage the Vienna Architecture Conference 2010.

Raimund Abraham stood for radicalism and utopias; he fought for visions and demanded the realization of architecture in its most unconventional and pioneering dimension. As a noncon- formist, an essential critic, and champion of a fundamental architectural stance, Abraham cam- paigned tirelessly for architecture's collective renewal. With the construction of the Austrian Cultural Forum Building in New York (2002), he made an outstanding contribution to contemporary architecture in Manhattan.

Abraham’s legacy represents a point of departure and a challenge for contemporary architecture. To provide a discursive look at his exceptional stance, the hosts—Peter Noever and Wolf D. Prix— invited theoretical thinkers, artists, and architects to join the Vienna Architecture Conference 2010 in order to point out the unshakable contemporaneity and unique imagination of visionary, theo- retician, mentor, and teacher Abraham in an international context. Among the participants were Vito Acconci, Peter Eisenman, Kenneth Frampton, Andrea Lenardin, Peter Kubelka, Thom Mayne, Jonas Mekas, Eric Owen Moss, Alexis Rochas, and Lebbeus Woods. This publication documents the keynote lecture, speeches, and discussions held throughout the conference and involves additional contributions by Peter Cook, Michael Rotondi, and Elfie Semotan.

Only a few hours before his death on 4 March 2010, Raimund Abraham held a lecture at the South- ern California Institute of Architecture in Los Angeles. In his talk, entitled "Profanation of Solitude," he summed up his uncompromising attitude towards architecture.

A DVD with Raimund Abraham’s last lecture is enclosed in this publication.

Prinz Eisenbeton 6, Rock over Barock, Young and Beautiful: 7+2

Prinz Eisenbeton 6, Rock over Barock, Young and Beautiful: 7+2

The spatial concepts characteristic of the Baroque period are to be seen influencing the architecture of today, too. Baroque architecture is an experience in itself; unfolding its means gradually, almost defying any attempt to constrain it; cultivating the unexpected and in so doing, gaining its freedom. Rock aims at doing the same. It almost impudently takes up traditional ideas and puts them into a new context. Consciously or not, young architects trace and change the spatial sequences of the Baroque to their liking, bringing them up-to-date. The work of seven young offices, Artec, Urs Bette, Delugan Meissl, the next ENTERprise, Klaus Stattmann, stiefel kramer, Wolfgang Tschapeller, and two projects by students, Sophie Grell, Tercer Piso Arquitectos at the University of Applied Arts Vienna demonstrate that there is an Austrian tradition in architecture: a collective desire to celebrate space.

Prinz Eisenbeton 5, Techo en Mexico

Prinz Eisenbeton 5, Techo en Mexico

"The Mexican Roof", architektonisches Wahrzeichen einer Organisation für ökologische Landwirtschaft, ist eines der wenigen Beispiele in denen ein äußerst ambitioniertes Projekt, entworfen von Studenten des Studios a3, Institut für Architektur der Universität für Angewandte Kunst Wien, unter der Leitung von Professor Wolf D. Prix, erfolgreich realisiert wurde. In einem ersten Schritt wurde das Projekt in Wien ausgearbeitet um dann in einer abgeschiedenen Provinz Mexikos von den Studenten mit Hilfe lokaler Kräfte selbst gebaut zu werden. Das beeindruckende Ergebnis ist ein Dach aus dem Baustoff Bambus, das einerseits Schatten spendet und vor Sonne schützt, gleichzeitig aber Regenwasser sammelt, das der Bewässerung der Pflanzungen dient. Das Buch dokumentiert den Entstehungsprozess in Wien wie auch den spannenden Bauprozess vor Ort in Mexiko. Ein Werk, das nicht nur für Studenten und Lehrende wertvoll ist, sondern eine Bereicherung für jeden darstellt, der am Zusammentreffen unterschiedlicher Kulturen und dem Potential architektonischer Formen interessiert ist.
