Installation by Armin Blasbichle

In his installation, Armin Blasbichler deals with the graphical representation of architecture. Inspired by the vocabulary and production of construction drawings, the work is based on the inclusion of fragments of drawings at a 1:1 scale, of the closeness to reality of that which they are describing. The 1: 1 scale presents the final condition of all the plans and models of representation. The simultaneity of perception transports imaginations and lived reality into an oscillating condition. In the role of devils advocate, this work explores the aberrations, possibilities of mediation, and attempts to reproduce reality.


Installation by freilich landschaftsarchitektur

Themes of the landscape architecture studio “freilich” are the possibilities of open space utilisation. In a world influenced by telecommunications and by a state of continuous work commitments, it seems that the various possible uses of public space have been forgotten. The open space seems to be increasingly a “space of passage”. Play and leisure in cities and towns have been relegated to areas far from the centres of public life. Entertainment and communication are developed individually through multimedia. Central urban public spaces are reserved for tourism and shopping and one feels a certain emptiness. What is missing is the multiplicity of activities. Still dare to play in a square? Can you still have fun in a public space? The installation wants to animate a new perception of public space that can be temporarily occupied and experienced.

Reciprocal influence

Installation by Plasmastudio

In the Plasmastudio installation, detail is considered as part of an applied design strategy, and in this sense experienced. It is an installation that aims to reflect on the detail within its historical context, and that focuses on the abandonment of the Cartesian system. It is an expression of the relationship and interaction between context, form, performance and material used. New production methods will be applied and new possibilities evaluated. The installation shows how some formal solutions can change the characteristics of the materials and how deformations can become structural forces.


“riccione” architects installation

First you design, then you build, finally you take a picture of architecture. In the exhibition project thought up for Lungomare, this process will be reversed: At the beginning, there will be a picture of a building, then a project to be developed.

weber + winterle installation

The installation is an attempt to model the area with sinuous shapes using a continuous turf, playing on the ambiguous relationship between “natural nature” and “artificial nature.” It is a prototype of a design object where you can sit, lie down, sunbathe. At the same time, it is a scale model of an urban-architectural intervention where land art and green roofs in a public space interact with the audienc

Seeing with the ears

Ulrich Troyer lecture and installation Troyer

The lecture aims to describe the creative use of spatial acoustics, demonstrating its possibilities within the design process. In addition, aspects of sensing and perceiving architecture by the visually impaired, based on the principles of spatial acoustics, will be defined.
The installation is based on interviews with visually impaired people and on their perception of the city, urban space and architecture. To the listener it opens up an everyday reality, but one rarely perceived.

I'll cook you a house

Lecture and action by Christian Schwienbacher Schwienbacher

Christian Schwienbacher thematises the relationship between client and architect in his lecture. Every client consults a stack of magazines and articles on the theme of lifestyle. In this way a mixture of diverse styles and images are often born in their imagination that don’t reflect their own personal requirements and needs. However, in an efficient design process, the client’s requests, concrete needs and opinion play a key role. Strategies that look to compare the images and the imagination of the customer with their individual and subjective needs are undertaken. A close collaboration between client and architect is the prerequisite for an efficient design process.

Strategies, tactics and "wrong" parameters

Lecture and debate by “feld72”

For its contribution, the cooperative “feld72” thematises the challenge and the desire to investigate and intervene in many aspects of reality, using methods that go beyond mere architectural thought. Alongside a discussion “feld72” attempt, by using a collage, to make visible a narrative that represents the application of this method in South Tyrol.

Selective gazes

Lecture by Andreas Flora, “sapinski salon”

The selective perception, conscious or unconscious influences the processes that generate architecture. The selective gaze represents a precise aspect of the quality of photography. It affects the content and aesthetics of that which is represented and therefore assumes a creative and manipulative potential. Based on a variety of principles concerning a theory of photography, one can establish analogies with the design and appropriation of architecture. The lecture
represents an attempt to describe some of these analogies in order to grasp the social entwinements of architecture.

Capitalism and schizophrenia

Lecture by Carlotta Polo

Themes of the lecture are diagrammatic architecture and the text “Capitalism and Schizophrenia” by G. Deleuze. I have wanted to work for a long-time on this book and project the theory contained within it on South Tyrol. It concerns approaches to better understand the situation in which we find ourselves. Because the text lends itself to multiple interpretations, it is still possible that through this book new questions can be raised. The lecture becomes a sort of walk across the current urban and philosophical theories of international importance – there are in fact many architects and urban planners who are engaged with this theme (Foreign Office “Yokohama”, Manuela Gausa “Hi Cat”, Vicente Guallart “Sociopolis “etc).

Look! The loss of the normal

Lecture by Lukas Abram

In his lecture Lukas Abram is concerned with how the transformation of South Tyrolean society from the world of self-sufficient farming to an information society, threatens South Tyrolean rural traditions, and how all this affects everyday architecture and landscape. The lecture is an illustrated focus on social transformation, crisis of identity and loss of image.
