MArch Studio: History Theory Criticism


Angelika Schnell, Antje Lehn

Open source followers and defenders of copy-right represent today the ongoing dilemma of the modernist world: celebrating the originality and autonomy of every single piece of work or releasing it to the technical and social possibilities of people’s participation?

In this situation, local libraries become more and more important as public hubs for information, for knowledge, for learning, for playing, for „chilling“, for various kinds of  social contact. In accord with the role model of London’s „Idea Stores“ a new public library for the Donau City, Vienna’s New Town, is to be designed.
At the same time the studio will deal with the long and rich history of aesthetic and design methods of copying, imitating, repeating, remixing, etc. Intellectually and artistically these should be analysed and adopted to the whole design process. Two workshops with Elke Krasny and the accompanying design seminar will support the students’ approach which might focus the process and method of designing rather than the final design. Hence, the brief will be the design of a conceptual project of a new kind of knowledge exchange.
