What is architecture? How is it regarded, understood, and managed today? A special role in this fundamental discussion is played by élite institutions, which as symbolic answering machines take their approach from different angles: They communicate clear messages, constantly accumulate new answers, and connect people and ideas. But what exactly is being communicated here? How do studies influence individual approaches? Where, ultimately, is it taking us? And who is being brought into connection with whom? The exhibition THE ANSWERING MACHINE of the Faculty of Architecture and City Planning of the Polytechnic University of Timișoara is taking a look at the design and relevance of the Alma Mater as answering machine. With the aim of thrusting open doors to new university and cultural thinking spaces, students search for answers in the run-up to the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK – during the festival, they will aspire to give them shape in the context of a laboratory-type arrangement, developed in part in collaboration with Romanian architects living in Vienna.
