Our mission is to engage transformations in contemporary culture and technology
with architectural innovation in order to create new spatial experiences and building types. Our vision is to educate designers
as thought leaders representing civic society and a quality sustainable built environment.
Our teaching is located at the spatial and material intersection of the digital
and the physical. We combine technical expertise with cultural awareness to secure the relevance of our students in the field
of architecture for decades to come. From a position of rigorous dialogue with historic architectural precedents we are in
exchange with parallel disciplines of “the applied arts” as are uniquely present at the Angewandte Wien.
In the last decade, the studio has taught
a variety of skills to our students including: building -scale robots such as moving rooms and transforming envelopes; augmented
reality integrated with architectural spaces, models, and methods of construction; vertical transportation and the integration
of micro-mobility devices into and around buildings; machine vision applied to autonomous movement of furniture and fixtures
in buildings; machine learning by training design software on images of architectural plans and elevations; and pedestrian,
vehicular, and air circulation simulation and as well as game software as a design medium.
All of these technological methods are accompanied by critical responses to
changes in the way that people: occupy buildings such as communal complexes and office sharing; move with transportation such
as ride hailing and vehicle sharing; shop for goods and groceries such as online purchasing fulfilled with both in-store pick-up,
curbside pick-up or delivery; and use living, dining and office spaces that demand facilitate social distancing and outdoor
