In 2006, we managed to establish a new research platform called space&designstrategies_research at the Art University of Linz. Lead by Univ.Prof. Elsa Prochazka, the field of study `space&designstrategies´ offers students the opportunity to develop cross disciplinary skills in the fields of architecture, art, design, digital media, communication studies, and aesthetics.

Initiated and coordinated by Sandrine von Klot, the associated research platform operates independently of the curriculum and functions as a competence centre for Ph.D. studies, research projects, visiting professors, and as a resource for independent projects.

Internationally working architects and artists are being invited to conduct interdisciplinary workshops providing students with the rare opportunity to become an immanent part of a collective production process.

Following the workshops we carefully prepare round-table discussions dedicated to refined artistic working methods as well as architectural design strategies. For these public events we invite additional artists and theoreticians from outside.
