Lecturers: Nott Caviezel, Birgit Knauer, Monika Platzer

This seminar was intended to offer students an insight into the practice of architectural research and archive work while at the same time conveying the basis of scholarly work (structuring a written work both methodically and in terms of its content). Dealing with archival material from the area of Austrian architecture of the 20th century was also one of the focal points.

2013 Research

The scholarly processing of the NS Archive of Klaus Steiner was successfully completed through the research project “Bauen im Nationalsozialismus am Beispiel Wien”(Building in National Socialism, using Vienna as an example).
