This event celebrates the act of architectural resistance in a time of so called austerity and developer-driven expectations.
Is architectural innovation dead? What are the trends of architecture resistance?
Can and should architects engage in socio-cultural change or stick to aesthetic issues?
What is anti-norm of today?
International students, architectural educators and practicing professionals will discuss these issues and more during a workshop and a symposia.
Günther Domenig’s Steinhaus (which numbers among the keyworks of experimental architecture, is one of the most stricting examples of Domenig’s (1934-2012) uncompromising search for an individual form of expression, and also a convincing example for his unabated resistance) presents a unique background for this architectural event “NEVER AGAIN RESISTANCE?” and will examine the role of the architect and what it means to be a student of architecture now.
