The Making of... Glass Architecture

Lecture Series by the department of Building Construction, Institute of Architecture, University of Applied Arts Vienna

This is a lecture series that delves into the planning and construction processes of outstanding architecture and looks at the topic from a technical point of view. It provides a forum for experts who are – often little-noticed by the architecture discourse – working behind the scenes but play a key role for the implementation of innovative architecture.
 
All lectures take place online via zoom:
While the making of cinema blockbusters is well established as a film genre of its own, one hardly learns anything about the genesis of great buildings. Usually in lectures about architecture only the beginning and the end of the design and construction processes are presented: the key design ideas and the completed, impeccably photographed building. In the lecture series The Making of special attention is being paid to the intermediate process. It addresses the challenges of architecture production, trials and errors, research and technical progress.
