The Institute for Art and Architecture (IKA) believes that architecture is an intellectual construction of ideas tied to its socio-economic and political context. Architectural production needs to be alert and inquisitive, at the same time innovative, inventive and critical. Consequently, we educate/encourage our students to experiment with ideas through research, test their credibility and viability through making and project their implementation in practice. If you are interested in architecture as a domain in which you exercise your intellectual capacity, where you tirelessly pursue arguing for a better world, where you insist on making a difference in how we inhabit the environment, and if you are interested in dialogue and debate, the IKA at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna is the right choice. We are looking for students who are interested in investing in the future of architecture.

Architectural education at the Institute for Art and Architecture is based on five research platforms. They provide the foundation for a new type of architectural education, in which students and teachers alike can focus on a particular interest and yet connect to all of the other topics that are essential to understand the complexity of the discipline of architecture:

Analogue Digital Production (ADP) / Construction Material Technology (CMT) / Ecology Sustainability Cultural Heritage (ESC) / History Theory Criticism (HTC) / Geography Landscapes Cities (GLC)

Each platform constitutes a research and design laboratory exploring relevant contem­porary issues within its respective field. Design projects are at the center of the educa­tion and are taught by a versatile faculty of practicing architects, historians, and engineers on a one-on-one basis and through team-teaching.

Design faculty 2021/22: Aristide Antonas, Christina Condak, Daniela Herold, Michael Hirschbichler, Michelle Howard, David Lieberman, Valerie Messini, Luciano Parodi, Andreas Rumpfhuber, Angelika Schnell, Eva Sommeregger, Hannes Stiefel, Wolfgang Tschapeller
