Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to reflect upon peri-urban and rural areas by means of a critical photographic documentation which can potentially be complemented by sketches and short texts.

Subject of course

An important transition of our agglomerations will not happen within their center but within their surrounding areas. Building on the thesis that by now the role of large parts of the non-urban area is mainly to provide supply work for the cities, the course will focus on considering the territory according to functional-spatial relationships and cycles. The lecturers will thereby offer an unadorned perspective on non-urban territories and the footprint which is left there by the ongoing growth of the cities. Rampant soil sealing, windowless facilities, industrially cultivated agricultural areas and linear infrastructure mark the image of peri-urban to rural areas.
Considering new interdisciplinary constellations, we will study the territory in a prospective way and investigate the question of how architects can contribute on a territorial level.
This summer semester the focus is put on logistic networks and its spatial consequences. Following guest lectures of various academic colleagues and external experts, the students will study the periphery of Vienna by the means of a critical photographic documentation, which shall be complemented by sketches and texts in a collage to create a future-oriented image of the investigated territory, respectively its functions.
