Architektur ohne Grenzen Austria (Architecture without Borders Austria) was founded at the end of as a part of the network architecture sans frontières international. This ten-person group consisting of architects, an art historian and a building services expert is currently working intensively on implementing building projects in the field of development work. Based on the results of research work carried out in the respective regions they explore ways of integrating local building crafts, anonymous building traditions, technology and ecology in a contemporary built form. This produces additional value in terms of lifespan, environment, energy, comfort and economics. The combination of these different aspects leads to an innovative architecture that creates a humane built environment.
