Subject of course


Film as a medium for documentation is becoming increasingly important. This course offers an introduction to the use of film-based architectural documentation. From the creation of a concept to post-production, the necessary tools are taught to create appealing image films.

This semester the course is offered in conjunction with the module Cultural Spaces.

The topic of the Cultural Spaces module in the summer semester 2022 is

A new townscape protection concept for Bad Aussee

In cooperation with representatives of the municipality of Bad Aussee, the history of the town, the existing townscape protection concept and the necessity of revising it will be discussed and intensive documentation of the existing situation will be carried out. On the basis of these investigations, ideas for new impulses for the protection of the townscape and at the same time possible further development of the village will be developed.

This LVA serves to capture the site with the medium of film and to use the created features to communicate the concepts.

After introductory lessons in March, filming will take place during the excursion to Bad Aussee and the clips will then be processed into image films. The aim is to capture the architecture, lifestyle and infrastructure of the town in order to use them as a basis for a revision of the townscape protection concept of Bad Aussee.
