INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTURE (IOA), THE UNIVERSITY OF APPLIED ARTS VIENNA
The goal of the Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and of its Dean Klaus Bollinger is to teach architecture as an all-inclusive thought process that puts the future architect in the position to define architecture as a three-dimensional expression of culture. To achieve this, the three design studios of Kazuyo Sejima, Greg Lynn and Hani Rashid closely work together with specialists in the departments of technology, theory and editing within our institute, as well as with specialists from reputable external organizations.
This potential for interaction is realized in closely networked teams that are kept comparatively small to facilitate the transfer of knowledge. In computerlabs and state-of-the-art model shops, the latest technologies are tested in theory and practice. The continuous necessity of re-defining architecture both in theoretical and practical terms should be the main focus of teaching.

ESR04- INTERACTIVE MULTIPLE CRITERIA SEARCH IN EARLY DESIGN PHASE
Author: Zeynep Aksoz
The involvement of machine intelligence carries the process of design into a new association between two species which continuously influence each other during the search for an ideal design solution. Such design methodology is of high importance for a more integrated information rich and creative design thinking. The research is focusing on development... read more
ESR07- SIMULATING CONTROLLED BENDING-ACTIVE STRUCTURES
Author: Efilena Baseta
The field of structural engineering focuses on preventing large deformations in order to create a safe built environment, which results in rigid, non adaptive structures. On the contrary, natural environment has been self-organized by natural forces applied to materials and structures, allowing evolution and adaptation. read more
