Some panelists argue that the Biennale provides an opportunity for a range of architects to communicate with the public, while other panelists doubt how open it really is. The panelists argue that the Biennale, as well as other international art fairs like it, are becoming stagnant, codifying a limited range of aesthetics and techniques.


Gunther Domenig Structures That Fit My Nature

Introduction by: ,

Gunther Domenig talks about two projects he has worked on: repurposing the Nazi Congress Hall in Nuremberg into a documentation center, and the ongoing design of his house in Steindorf Austria. In the documentation center in Nuremberg, Domenig penetrated the fragmented existing structure with a spear that serves as a main circulation shaft. Domenig’s “Steinhaus” is a house that emulates the mountains and stone of its landscape. He considers the house his life’s work and uses concrete, steel and glass to produce an explosion of shapes and spaces.

Domenig desribes his house, Steinhaus, in Steindorf, Austria. Inspired by the mountains and stones in the region, Domenig maintains that the house is the truest expression of his personal style. While the use of concrete and steel usually imply a very grounded structure, Domenig makes shapes seem to float and appear weightless. While he claims it is inspired by vernacular architecture, he admits it is unlike a typical Austrian house.

Introduction by:

Roger Riewe presents a selection of projects meant to demonstrate a line of thought connecting Riegler Riewe’s diverse body of work. He discusses a football stadium that was completed in about three weeks by a large team of planners, civil engineers, structural engineers, mechanical engineers, landscape architects and other consultants. He presents designs for a luxury hotel in Switzerland, two railway stations, two social housing projects, and two large university projects. Riewe characterizes the firm’s central interest in all these projects is the confrontation and interrelation of social and cultural forces with architecture and urban planning. He discusses a public housing project in Graz, Austria where the facades on the East and West sides are different due to climatic conditions. In a project for the Institute of Computer Technology in Graz, Riewe says they wanted to create opportunities for people to identify spaces as places, and also create surprise. He discusses a project to create a public space for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona. Riewe describes it as an opportunity to explore the contradictions of contemporary space: physically perceptible but saturated with media, timeless and emphemeral.

Riewe discusses a public housing project in Graz where the facades on the East and West sides are different due to climatic conditions. Funded with public money, the local Austrian government initially rejected the proposal citing concerns that it would break up the traditional family structure of one man, one woman, and two children. Riewe discusses a completed airport project in which they used a line running through the plan to set up the first major spatial sequence. This refurbishment of an existing airport was small and simple with a large glass facade that is so clear that people often walk into it at night.

In a project for the Institute of Computer Technology in Graz, Riewe says they wanted to create opportunities for people to identify spaces as places, and also create surprise. Representatives from the institute decided on the organization of the office spaces while Riewe’s firm determined the placement of holes created by attaching the separate buildings at the third level.

Mark Pauline presents a video of the 1992 SRL show in Austria entitled The Deliberate Evolution of a War Zone. The event was promoted as a show about war making reference to the ongoing conflict in nearby Bosnia. Complaints from residents about the noises the show lead the Ministry of Defense to put the military on alert and almost resulted in the arrest of Pauline and his collaborators. The show begins with the machines gently caressing each other and quickly devolves into a chaotic war scene, featuring a flamethrowing canon and background cartoon sound effects.
