Vyjayanthi Rao on architecture research in a globalized world

mariacecilia fagel

Last month, Terreform co-director Vyjayanthi Rao was invited to take part of “Global Demands: Architecture Research in a Globalized World” held at Architekturzentrum Wien.

Whether in the sphere of architecture critique or on the market of speculative real estate investment, architecture is increasingly becoming the subject of global circulation.

For contemporary architecture production this presents numerous challenges: How can we do justice to the complexities of global dynamics as well as very local peculiarities in our work?  Where do we start when the issue is alternative approaches to spatial renewal? The two architecture researchers Peter Mörtenböck and Helge Mooshammer have invited fellow participants in their international projects to discuss these questions and to develop perspectives for the future.

Guests:

Teddy Cruz and Fonna Forman, University of California San Diego

Rahul Mehrotra, Harvard GSD

Vyjayanthi Rao, Terreform, New York

Irit Rogoff, Goldsmiths, London

AbdouMaliq Simone, Max Planck Institute, Göttingen

Moderated by: Peter Mörtenböck and Helge Mooshammer, Vienna University of Technology
