The City as an Element of Architecture

Urban Design Exercise - 2nd year bachelor studiesat the institute of urban design, University of Innsbruck
led by Daniel Koehler with Martin Danigel
summer 2017.

In the field of architecture, the structuralist movement during the second half of the last century can be seen as a precedent describing the city via the relation and nesting of its parts. In the architecture of structuralism, the vis-à-vis of cells formulated an explicit object. Designed as vertical streets, courtyards, support structure and terraces, the vis-à-vis of cells led to the design of architectural artefacts, expressing the city. In this course, we will examine the built and proposed projects of Structuralism, their precursors, precedents, and projects influenced by Structuralism. We will describe, mark and sample their inherent urban descriptions: manifests of the city as an element of its architecture.
