About this event

Lecture by Sabine Knierbein

Lived Space and Everyday Life

In the frame of the Module Emerging Fields in Architecture (++), HB2, TU Wien


Content: Architectural praxis is a social process with cultural, political, economic and ecological dimensions. The field of urban studies is a cross‐disciplinary field investigating the social production of space and the diverse roles that architects and architecture can play within contemporary patterns of more‐than‐capitalist urban development schemes. The lecture offers basic insights into the manifold relations between urban form and urban life.


The module Emerging Fields in Architecture imparts current knowledge from new research fields in architectural and engineering disciplines, with the aim of dealing with current and future design challenges in a broader social context in an interdisciplinary and fundamental way. The lectures impart knowledge about different and interdisciplinary approaches to design, current developments and results of material and construction research, about planning and building under/in extreme conditions as well as about structures that change or develop due to changing parameters.

In this context, strategies for design (from the initial idea to implementation) are questioned in an interdisciplinary discourse, and the question of how the path from idea to realisation can be shaped and to what extent it is possible to be systematically creative is explored. In the practical part, an independent cross-thematic examination is to be carried out.
