We are happy to announce that this summer semester 2017 the IoA again offers the CROSS OVER STUDIO, directed by Andrea Börner and Bernhard Sommer. The Studio gathers students from the three master-classes to a joint venture in research and design on a special topic.

Topic: Urban Ecologies 4.0 Speculating on Future Public Spaces 

Technological changes brought about by the information revolution are already causing a shift in the understanding and use of the public/common spaces in its current function as a meeting place and space for cultural exchange. The studio develops architectural interventions in order to advance with spatial manifestations into the vacuum that this collapsing public leaves behind. 

Conducted by faculty from within the institute (Urban Strategies & Energy Design), the program foresees intense workshops with invited guests, lectures and reviews in a well balanced mix of integrating international and local knowledge to contribute to the studio in teaching, feed-back and dialogue. 

The cross over studio is designed for 9-12 participants from our three Design Studios, and counts as regular studio/ entwurfs-semester in regard to the curriculum and gained ETCS.
Application: Students are selected according to motivation and work samples. Please send brief material and motivation to: sabine.peternell@uni-ak.ac.at until February 25 2017.
