The workshops are aimed at students and professionals coming from the fields of architecture, urbanism, design and engineering. Each participant in the workshops will develop technological skills and get a deep understanding of parametric and sustainable design, new smart and sustainable materials for construction and the potentials of different hardware and software applications in public space. Additionally, participants will get a deep understanding on citizen participation in the design, programming and time-occupation of public space. By the end of the workshop participants will have a global comprehension of the design and development of Active Public Space and Smart City Projects based in real-life environments. They will learn how to make projects that integrate the design of active public space, citizen interaction and participation and the technologies of information, developing technical, social and economic skills.

Vienna Workshop – Outcomes

The VIE workshop took place in Vienna between the 8th and the 10th of June 2016 at UAAV premises. 11 students attended the workshop.

The aim of the workshop was to provide participants, through lessons and practical exercises, with the necessary knowledge to design Active Public Space.

Each participant in the workshops developed technological skills and get understanding of parametric and sustainable design, new smart and sustainable materials for construction, the potentials of different hardware and software applications in public space and methodologies for citizen participation, thanks to lectures and tutorials (VIE Workshop_Program).

The workshop the following lectures have been given:

on Energy Design & Workshop Task

Bernhard Sommer and Galo Moncayo, University of Applied Arts in Vienna

Arguments on Public Space in Vienna

Beatrice Stude

Citizen Participation

Igor Kovacevic

on Micro-Climate in Urban Public Spaces

Matthias Ratheiser

Visualization & Interpretation of Data

Alexandre Dubor

On Interactive Systems

Saman Saffarian

Moreover the following tutorials have been given by Galo Moncayo

  • Arduino
  • Digital Mapping of Real Space Using Sensors
  • 3d Modeling of Interactive Geometry

The students developed projects of interactive prototypes for the public space.

During the last workshop day the students presented the work developed in front of a jury composed by: Andrea Börner (UAAV), Chiara Farinea (IAAC), Anna Gulinska (UAAV), Yvette Vašourková (CCEA), Bernhard Sommer (UAAV), Beatrice Stude, Reiner Zettl (UAAV)
