Coop Himmelb(I)au is an international practice with a long history in building construction.
With its foundation in 1968, the practice has experienced the shift from the 20th to the 21st century that brought a variety of technological advancements along with new design methods. In this lecture, the design-to-realisation thinking and processes of key projects … more
Or from Painterly Illusionism to Augmented Reality?
PhD thesis: 2019- ongoing
Today, the Italian painter-architect Andrea Pozzo features in any overview of Baroque architecture. The reason for this lies not in his virtuosity as a painter, but rather in the explicit architectural character of his art. It is architectural because he intervenes in and alters the existing fabric of the building, but above all because his ceiling paintings, which are accurate in perspective when viewed from one angle, … more

This dissertation investigates the object-like ornament in architecture and examines its historiographic and contemporary constitution in design practice. The work is therefore both theoretical and applied. The topic of the dissertation, the ornament, is positioned at the heart of architecture and thus also amidst a cultural and technological debate, the social significance of which has become increasingly noticeable in recent years. The field … more
Environment-Responsive Materials as Dynamic Markers for Architectural Augmented Reality Applications
Research project led by Theresa Uitz and Andreas Körner (2021-2022)
With the awareness of our environmental responsibilities growing, architects must engage with alternative design strategies and techniques to express thermal comfort characteristics that are unseen with the naked eye and their inherent spatial features.
Augmented Reality (AR) is a digital technology that allows real events to be virtually augmented by overlaying real data with digital data. As an emergent technology, … more
