The workshop will give an overview of a range of new possibilities that occur through new technologies and will show practical examples and applications with both digital and physical artefacts. ranging across various disciplines like art, product design and architecture. The participants are encouraged to bring a “designed object” of everyday use of their choice. These objects will create the basis for an interactive discussion with the group about materials, form finding, digitalisation of the analogue, digital fabrication tools and methods. Within this worksession we aim to investigate the relation between the different steps of digital production and how these steps are informing each other. Additional topics might be the highlighting of the differences of prototyping, and the industrial production of designs driven by the foci and questions from the participants.
Kröhnert is an architectural researcher and specialises in digital fabrication. Since 2014 she holds a teaching position at the Institute of Architecture at the Angewandte (University of Applied Arts Vienna) in addition to leading its Digital Design and Production Lab. She is currently on sabbatical to work on the research project “Conceptual Joining” and as an artist and product designer.
She studied architecture at KIT Germany and in the Studio of Wolf D. Prix in Vienna, followed by several years of architectural practice with Coop Himmelb(l)au and teaching assignments at the University of Applied Sciences (TH) Nuremberg.Kr
Lisa Wolf is a designer and researcher. She is working as a product and interior designer, and joined the University of Applied Arts Vienna in 2017, where she is teaching in and currently managing the DDPLAB, holding courses on digital fabrication.
She studied architecture in the studios of Wolf D. Prix and Greg Lynn in Vienna. She has worked for several architecture and design offices in Vienna and London, e.g. Gregor Eichinger, ACME and Tom Dixon.
