SOPHIENSPITAL AS A GOLDMINE

Universität für angewandte Kunst Wien

28.9.–7.10.2018

For the upcoming renovation of the former Sophienspital, an installation by university graduates Clara Rosa Rindler-Schantl, Eva Maria Mair, and Klaus Kodydek takes a look at the changes being made to the building Martin Kohlbauer designed in 1999. The work takes a stand regarding current buildings, many of which have insufficient service lives, and reveals potential for possible reuse of existing material resources. The installation, framed by a panel of prominent names, will thematize a possible rethinking with regard to material flows in the construction industry which is not only possible, but urgently needed.
