On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Wienerberger AG, a symposium will take place at the MAK
– Museum of Applied Arts
, Vienna in cooperation with Wienerberger
in the context
of preparations for the architecture exhibition during the VIENNA BIENNALE FOR
CHANGE 2019: BRAVE NEW VIRTUES. Shaping Our Digital World
Architecture provides structure and form, creates
spaces, and directly influences various areas of human existence as a designed environment. It impacts on emotions, perceptions,
as well as behavior, and enables collective and individual experiences. If, however, as is the case nowadays, virtues are
undergoing fundamental changes, this in turn will have an influence on notions of quality of life and the challenges architecture
will be confronted with in the future.
The symposium will discuss the added value architecture can already
create for better living today. At the same time, it dares to look ahead in order to formulate hypotheses on possible scenarios
and design tasks to shape the future.
Admission: Free and open to the public but registration
is required. Registration for the symposium includes access to all sessions, lunch, and refreshments.
