Review by Cameron McEwan:
Peripheral Monuments – Book Review of Thinking Design  - Blueprint for an architecture of typology by Andreas Lechner, in: Journal of Architecture and Urbanism, Volume 46/1 (2022)



“In ‘Thinking Design: Blueprint for an Architecture of Typology’ Andreas Lechner reassesses the question of architectural typology in relation to design research, practice, and theory. The book is organised into three extended chapters, entitled: Tectonics, Type, and Topos. In dialogue with the text are drawings of 144 important buildings from ancient times to the twenty-first century, focused on civic typologies. Each of those typologies incorporates a suite of 12 examples drawn in neat line drawings at a consistent scale. An enclosed booklet features design theses extracts by twelve students of TU Graz that illustrate Lechner’s approach to teaching and design. I reflect on each chapter and argue that Thinking Design offers an original theoretical reflection on the status of the urban periphery and opens compelling questions about architecture and architectural design research as a practice of critical inquiry.”

Seminar Building Typology – Counterintuitive Typologies
Conclusion at Innsbruck’s Institut für Gestaltung – Studio 1


Seminar Building Typologies at LFU Innsbruck with master students Daniela Aichner, Armin Azizi, Tina Emmerich, Luca Guarino, Selina Junker, Eva Längle, Andrey Lobachev, Michael Marhte, Laura Neubauer and Fabian Teufel we’ve been discussing pros, cons and possible futures of typological thinking in architectural design. The cover pages of the seminar papers feature 'impossible plans' – grafted hybrids that were produced before the actual seminar as introductory exercises and are now followed by the student's texts.
