Panel discussion

Dietmar Steiner, director Az W
Sandra Manninger, SPAN-Baukunst
Michael Lisner, Virtual DynamiX
Moderated by: Elke Krasny, curator of the exhibition
Ute Woltron, architecture journalist

To accompany the exhibition this time BIG Az W wants to analyse architect’s design tools, and explore the charged arena between traditional hand-sketching and the computer-generated rendering. How has designing improved? Do new tools, such as highly specialised computer programmes, actually lead to different architectures? What opportunities are emerging with these new architectural instruments – and is best use really being made of them? How do architects manage to transform virtual forms into reality later, undamaged by the standardising force of the building industry?
