AUSTRIAN AC 2015
Austrian Architectural Culture
6th- 24th July 2015
The academic program of the course “Austrian Architectural Culture” introduces this specific approach.
The first week gives an insight into social and cultural specifics of the modern Habsburg metropolis around 1900 to explain the origin and function of the historic “Gründerzeit” architecture of the belle époque. Within the second week, the focus shifts to the crafts necessary for the planner and designer of interventions in traditional architecture like building archaeology and building preservation. During the final week, issues of life cycle costs for buildings and smart city concepts will be discussed under the focus of adaptation and revitalization of traditional architecture.
The days will start each with a morning lecture preparing for the field trip and/or excursion following under guidance of the lecturer of the day. Public lectures during the early afternoon will allow experts to bridge the specific themes and topics of the various summer courses offered by INNES. The later afternoons and evenings are reserved for the social program.
