Angewandte Architecture Alumni Club

Menu

As a graduate of the Institute for Architecture at the University of Applied Arts one is part of a community of creative individuals, who coin and develop architecture.

Many of these IoA-Alumni act worldwide as independent architects, work in renowned architecture offices or are engaged in teaching and research at well-known universities. The alumni also contribute to the Angewandte’s international reputation to range among the best universities of art in the world.

It is the goal of the AAAC to network this creative potential, intensify the contacts between alumni and university and to build an alumni community, which supports the alumni’s work as well as the exchange between students and alumni.

Abstrakt I

Issue 01 - Health and Architecture Edited by Jade Bailey, Adriana Boeck, Emma Sanson, Patricia Tibu – Students of the Institute of Architecture Issue 02 - Automation, Fabrication and Design Edited by Lisa-Marie Androsch, Jade Bailey, Zach Beale, Adriana Böck, Velina Iantcheva, Xavier Madden, Emma Sanson, Patricia Tibu – Students of the Institute of Architecture “Abstrakt" is a newly established platform for architectural pedagogy at IoA that evolved from Studio Hani Rashid. “Abstrakt“ is the exploration of thoughts and ideas through conversations with creatives inside and outside the university, mixed with a collection of recent works from our students. The launch of our first printed edition during the festival allows us to showcase projects and encourage discussion not only to bridge the three studios and strengthen interaction, but also to share the institute’s efforts with the whole Angewandte.

Co-Corporeality of Humans, Machines, & Microbes

On architecture, AI, and microbiology The theory of Co-Corporeality is based on a conception of the built environment as a biological entity that opens up a space for coexistence and interaction between humans and microbial life. Based on design-led research, this book explores how we can develop environments for a multispecies world. It focuses on the agency of both human and nonhuman actors. New sensor tools enable observation of and interaction between these different actors. Co-Corporeality links microbiology to material science, artificial intelligence, and architecture. The focus is on how microbial activity can create new protoarchitectural materials, how living systems can be integrated into architecture and cooperate along different time scales. How artistic interventions connect human and nonhuman worlds through tracking systems and machine learning algorithms With essays by Rachel Armstrong, Alex Arteaga, Philip Beesley, Jens Hauser, and others Images of experiments and installations Edited by Barbara Imhof, Daniela Mitterberger and Tiziano Derme

Conceptual Joining - Wood Structures from Detail to Utopia/Wood Structures in Experimentation

With further contributions by:Gerald Bast, Brigitte Felderer, Hélène Frichot, Moritz Heimrath, Philipp Hornung, Anja Jonkhans, Helga Lichtenegger, Ferdinand Ludwig, Ulrich Müller, Adam Orlinski, Hannelore Paflik-Huber, Clemens Preisinger, Karin Raith, Jun Sato, Karolin Schmidbaur, Alfred Teischinger, Klaus Zwerger. In the artistic research project Conceptual Joining, the essence of wood as a building material is investigated as a determining principle for an architecture. The logic of complex material properties and the intelligence of classical joining techniques are translated into experimental spatial structures with the help of digital tools. The documentation of the work processes is complemented by selected guest contributions.

forA on the Urban

forA is a project rendered possible by Die Angewandte (University of Applied Arts Vienna), conceptualized and produced by the Institute of Architecture (I oA), edited by Gerald Bast (Rector, University of Applied Arts Vienna), Andrea Börner (Urban Strategies Department, I oA), Cristina Díaz Moreno & Efrén García Grinda (Architectural Design Studio 1, I oA), and Baerbel Mueller (Applied Foreign Affairs Lab, I oA), supported by an international advisory board: Tom Avermaete, Margitta Buchert, Nerea Calvillo, Mario Carpo, Filip de Boeck, Keller Easterling, Teresa Galí-Izard, Mario Gandelsonas, Andrew Herscher, Sandi Hilal, Nikolaus Hirsch, Sanford Kwinter, Lesley Lokko, Mpho Matsipa, John McMorrough, Peter Mörtenböck, Helge Mooshammer, Alesandro Petti, Philippe Rekacewicz, Curtis Roth, Saskia Sassen, Abdoumaliq Simone, Ines Weizman, Liam Young. The first issue #0 aims to initiate the cyclical nature of the project in this initial phase by fostering a process of invited and openly addressed contributions reflected on a discursive online platform, compiled in a pilot issue of the journal, and was debated at the launching event in September during the 17th International Architecture Biennale in Venice. With regard to the openly declared interests in emerging topicalities and formats, the aim is to intentionally conflate contributions that address spatial entanglements, dialogues and processes and methods of articulations, without framing any particular subject or topic. Issue #0 rather aims to open up the field to provide rich material and thought for further exploration in subsequent issues. Edited by Gerald Bast, Andrea Börner, Cristina Díaz Moreno & Efrén García Grinda and Baerbel Mueller

Nonlinear Urbanism Towards Multiple Urban Futures

This book compiles speculative contributions on disruptive, nonlinear futures of urban agglomerations, based on research conducted on urban innovation at the Department of Special Topics in Architecture at the Institute of Architecture of the University of Applied Arts Vienna. Students, alongside renowned experts, also comment on questions concerning our urban future.The novel reading structure, which is realized and suggested by the concept of the book, is also nonlinear: thematic, graphic cross-references enable contextual reading in addition to continuous reading. The enhancement of the printed book with digital augmented reality (AR) components offers networked, simultaneous reading on several levels and thus reflects the complexity of urban systems. Edited by Anton Falkeis, Anastasia Shesterikova, Benjamin James, Michael Tingen and the Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts Vienna
