Lecture on structural design by Klaus Bollinger
In his lecture at the University of Liechtenstein on 11 January 2012, at 6 p.m., Klaus Bollinger will speak on the topics of cooperation as a planning process and teamwork between architects and engineers. His lecture will focus on the collaboration of architects and engineers as a basis for innovative solutions. Klaus Bollinger has been a lecturer at the University of Applied Arts Vienna since 1994, where he heads the Institute for Structural Design. Together with Manfred Grohmann, he founded the engineering consultancy Bollinger & Grohmann Ingenieure over 25 years ago, an internationally operating company based in Frankfurt am Main with experience in planning and construction processes. Additional offices are situated in Vienna, Paris, Oslo and Melbourne. The company was presented with awards such as the Architecture & Technology Award for their work on the Kunsthaus Graz and the Preis des Deutschen Stahlbaus (both 2006). Other projects from the company include BMW Welt in Munich (2008) and the Rolex Learning Center in Lausanne (2010).

Lecture on energy by Brian Cody
Form follows energy – that is Professor Brian Cody’s concise conviction. The energy performance of buildings is maximized by optimizing form and construction. In his lecture, Brian Cody defines energy-efficient architecture as a triad of minimal energy consumption, ideal indoor climate and architectural quality. Professor Brian Cody is a lecturer at the Graz University of Technology, where he heads the Institute for Buildings and Energy. Prior to this, he was associate director of the global engineering company Arup. He is the founder and owner of the consultancy Energy Design Cody, which is involved in the development of innovative climate and energy concepts for construction projects around the world. Professor Brian Cody holds seats on numerous advisory boards and prize juries, and is a visiting professor at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
