PARTICIPATION AT THE ITALIAN VIRTUAL PAVILION 2023 20.05. – 26.11.2023
Utilising heat transfer simulations to predict thermochromic patterns on 3d-printed façade elements.
Research project by Andreas Körner (2022-2023)
Thermochromic materials are promising for architecture, but their limited UV resistance poses a problem for external applications. Such environmentally responsive smart materials have been studied in various fields ranging from fashion to product design and architecture. Building on previous research by the author, the project aimed to overcome the limitations of thermochromics by exploring heat transfer through solids from external to internal … 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
Historiography, Present and Morphology
Dr. Peter Massin

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

Course No.: 848181
Teaching: Prof. Marjan Colletti and Tobias Stenico
Digital technologies have managed to further blur the boundaries between the real and the virtual, analogue and digital domains, drawings and data. This is not something totally new, as several similar attempts can be traced in history. However, we are experiencing this dissolving and cross-dissemination of domains on a higher level of complexity. In this elective course, we will engage in a cyclical workflow that takes advantage of … more

The Yokohama Ferry Terminal building by Foreign Office Architects was designed in 1995 and built in 2002. It has been an icon of digital architecture, embodying computation paradigms, smoothness, and fluidity. Now, almost three decades later, the studio invites students to rethink those paradigms. While the movement of passengers through the building was a form-giving parameter for the terminal, it was also an analogy to the flow of water. In this … more
