End of semester at Innsbruck Institut für Gestaltung – Studio1


With 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.
