Head: o.Univ.-Prof. Mag.arch. Greg Lynn
Studio Greg Lynn focuses on
high performance architecture calibrated to the social and technological situation of contemporary culture. The studio
topics include rethinking work, entertainment, leisure, and living through research and innovation in intelligent buildings,
dynamic environments, and machine vision. In order to innovate we begin with benchmarks in architectural precedents. The studio
remains in dialogue with historical precedents as a means to define a rigorous architectural discipline. Taking advantage
of the unique creative and intellectual resources of the Angewandte in Vienna, the studio is open to and in continuous exchange
with other disciplines like industrial design, fashion, music, and film.
The studio is engaged with state of the
art computer and CNC technologies in both design and model fabrication. In the past few years the studio was amongst
the first to integrate drone vision, augmented and virtual reality visualisation, and photographic geometry capture in the
process of conceptual design. Rather than approaching technology as tool, the studio promotes the integration of technology
as a creative medium for expression as well as critical reflection.
