The project inserts three new classrooms, a 100m2 media lab and a 160m2 photo studio within vast, open artists' lofts of the former imperial stage-set production facility designed by Gottfried Semper and Karl Hasenauer in 1877. The lecture pods respond to the historic context, while adding a clearly contemporary identity to the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Mass-CustomizationAll five pavilions are variations derived from a common prototype, constructed out of CNC-milled plywood and assembled from approximately 1600 singular elements each. The parametric design and digital fabrication process allow for a high degree of differentiation at equal cost to serial manufacturing. Thus each pavilion is geometrically unique and adapts to specific spatial situations and individual programmatic needs of the users by intergrating furniture profiles such as benches, workstations and storage into the structural outer skin of the pods. BekleidungstheorieThe intricate wood structure unites load-bearing function, program and ornament at once and alludes to Gottfried Semper's theory on walls originating from the nomadic tradition of braiding.
