Whether in the sphere of architecture critique or on the market of speculative real estate investment, architecture is increasingly becoming the subject of global circulation.

For contemporary architecture production this presents numerous challenges: How can we do justice to the complexities of global dynamics as well as very local peculiarities in our work?  Where do we start when the issue is alternative approaches to spatial renewal? The two architecture researchers Peter Mörtenböck and Helge Mooshammer have invited fellow participants in their international projects to discuss these questions and to develop perspectives for the future.
