Anders als geWohnt

Liechtenstein’s intervention in Austria’s 2012 Architekturtage in Vorarlberg: On 1 and 2 June 2012, architecture students from the University of Liechtenstein will organize three different interventions in the public space of the Vorarlberg town of Dornbirn.


Liechtenstein’s intervention in Austria’s 2012 Architekturtage in Vorarlberg: On 1 and 2 June 2012, architecture students from the University of Liechtenstein will organize three different interventions in the public space of the Vorarlberg town of Dornbirn.

Under the title “Anders als geWohnt” (a different way of living), Austria’s 2012 Architekturtage will be held on 1 and 2 June. Having chosen the programme highlight “Wohnstile sind Lebensstile” (styles of living are lifestyles), Vorarlberg will focus on unusual lifestyles and new models of living with artistic installations, videos, accompanied walks and workshops. In Dornbirn, the total of 22 individual events to be held at 11 different locations will also include three projects by architecture students from the University of Liechtenstein, who will take an unexpected approach to encourage debate about the separation of private and public space.

Interventions in public space
The intervention entitled “Offensichtliche Privatangelegenheiten” (obvious private matters) will take place at Schulgasse (corner of Mozartstrasse) on Friday, 1 June, from 11 a.m., and will transform Dornbirn into a space of reflection and action on the topic of residential living. A radical cut into the facade of a partially disused building in the centre of the town will display traces of the private. The exposed architecture will lay bare a legacy of relationships of trust and secrecy. The semester project by undergraduate architecture students has been realized under the direction of lecturer Kathrin Aste (Arch. DI).


Following on at midday, 08zwölf, a young collective of up-and-coming architects at the University of Liechtenstein under the direction of lecturer Hugo Dworzak (Dipl.-Ing. Arch.), will arrange an unusual blind date on Dornbirn’s market square. In the intervention entitled “Voll Daneben” (completely off the mark), the living room, the epitome of the private and a place of intimacy within families, will come up against the market square, the hub of public life for the town as a whole. Participation by the public will determine what comes out of this encounter and how the two react to each other.


With “Voll daneben”, the young architecture collective from the University of Liechtenstein, under the direction of Hugo Dworzak, will arrange an unusual blind date on Dornbirn’s market square on 1 June 2012.

A third project deals with work by architecture students Jennifer Tschugnell, Marlon Alexander Mattle, Lara Klingler, Michael Kindle and Michael Kutzer from the 2011/12 winter semester. The screens created in the design studio of lecturer Markus Buschor (Arch. BSA) will be put to use from Friday in three shops on Dornbirn’s market square as an unusual option for fashion presentation. They can be seen at Seeberger Moden, Lingg Moden and Livid along one of the numerous architectural walks.

Entry to all interventions is free. The students themselves will be present and look forward to interesting discussions with visitors. The complete programme can be found at www.architekturtage.at.
