MArch Studio: Analogue and Digital Production


Wolfgang Tschapeller | Werner Skvara

How can we grasp complex phenomenona like the AKH, the WU, Alterlaa or ORF? And more importantly, how can we make it understandable and discussible? Is extensive reading and comprehensive study of the spatial facts enough? Is language enough? Are plans enough? Or must we say that the construction of a specific language is necessary to at least permit an amalgamation of the most diverse spatial, temporal and literary media? Does Karl Schlögel’s reference to the “unspeakable in history” mean that we do not have the right words? Did Aby Warburg set out a path for us with his panopticons? Are Walter Kempowski’s desperate archives a potential solution? Do the dry statements of the Anarchitektur group on the border geography of Sangatte make the concentration of space and social conditions tangible? Or Andreas Gursky’s silent images, detached from time, space and perspective? Thomas Demands “photographs”? Werner Feiersingers “sculptures”? Are constructions of exhibitions, publications, books and metatexts required?

As ADP, the  platform for Analog and Digital Design we decided to re-construct, meaning to construct again with the help of digital tools the geometry of the four buildings, as if we where re-designing them (designing them again), we added materiality to them. We brought in animation as the media of representation, with that the factor of time and most importantly the digital camera-object came into play, a virtual viewing device with a set of very distinct rules. Our project then is a study of four buildings of a very near past, and it is a study of the mechanics of seeing as well.
