surface in space

Integration / Scenography

Wed 09.04.2003, 18:00-23:59

With Büro Kiefer, realgrün Landschaftsarchitekten
Moderated by: Maria Auböck

A series of lectures organised by the Architekturzentrum Wien in partnership with Zement + Beton and der ARGE Fläche.

Following last year’s differentiation of spatial types in public space, the series of lectures Surface in Space 2003 is focusing on concepts, production strategies and modes of perception for contemporary landscape.
The sites are the result of practical experience gained over the last twenty years of landscape design, adopting ambiguous forms and as an intrinsically contradictory construction process in the no-mans-land of the superseded duality of rural urban space.

The terms memory / identification, integration / scenography and image / technology serve as leitmotifs for the series of lectures discussing current experiences in and approaches to the working of landscape, its symbolic pictorial repertoire, its ‘invisible’ social and cultural functions as well as the technological and medial permeation of the natural.
