Intricate Correlations - Intensification of Relations

Workshops and Symposium On Digital Design Processes in Obergurgl / Tirol

Conducted by Prof. Patrik Schumacher the institute for experimental architecture.hochbau at Innsbruck University/Austria has set its focus on script based and parametric design research within the last years, aiming to explore new design methods in order to advance the field of contemporary digital architectural design. During this time, various new approaches to digital design were developed, iteratively tested, improved and applied in different architectural scales, the urban scale, the building scale and the ergonomic scale. Research was carried out parallel to and coordinated accordingly by Patrik Schumacher at Design Research Laboratory (DRL, Architectural Association London), and at Studio Hadid (University of Applied Arts Vienna).


Assuming that the Intensification of Relations has for quite some time become a crucial topic in contemporary architecture, independently from specific design strategies or certain ideologies, the focus of research shall shift on intricate, meaningful correlations within systems and sub-systems (internal integration) and the implications of proto-designs within their environmental conditions (external adaption).

[...] an architectural designer's task is no longer to craft individual buildings in response to unique sites and briefs, the agenda's focus has been shifted on the design of inherently adaptive, parametric proto-types that intelligently vary general topological schemata across a wide range of parametrically specifiable [programmatic and] site conditions [...]. These proto-designs shall bare the potential to be compared to the small number of fundamental body plans that underlie the inexhaustibly variegated manifold of species that evolve – each within a complementary environmental niche – on the basis of primary body plans. Proto-designs are conceived in advance of any specific [external] information.

(from Studio Project Brief at DRL 2009/2010 by Patrik Schumacher and Christos Passas)


institute for experimental architecture.hochbau therefore invite experts in the field, innovative companies and groups of students to come to the Innsbruck University Centre in Obergurgl/Tirol to take part in a 3 day session of intensive workshops and discussions to further investigate the potential of this quite openly layed out topic.

The foundations for the formation of an 'Innovation and Competence Cluster' shall be discussed extensively, aiming to establish a framework for future collaborations and exchange of know how between experts/academics, producers/builders and student teams from various universities to utilise the existing creative potential, work 'hands on' and experiment thoroughly with digital design tools and production technologies.

4 student/university teams 4 experts 4 companies 4 sub-topics*

1. Proto-Design / Internal Integration
2. Proto-Design / External Adaption
3. Trans-Platform / Building Environment
4. Trans-Platform / Building Fabrication
  • The goal of these workshops and discussion panels is bringing together at least 4 student / university teams with 4 experts within the fields of parametric design / engineering and 4 innovative companies. 4 sub-topics suggest frameworks for topics that accompany the sessions (during the day) and lectures / panel discussions (in the evenings).


Participants / project teams are expected to bring projects from their design classes that will be the base for individual investigations within the workshops' frameworks. Therefore they are asked to prepare one DinA3 poster (landscape) per project that describes the project, it's underlying design principals along a short description of the expected investigations. Documents shall be submitted by June 4th; an adress will be published on the Symposium's website.
