suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Andreas KOERNER: Caterpillar is an experimental concept for dystopian urban architecture. The aim of the design studio was to think about urban and industrial parasites. Architecture that works itself through urban areas and settles wherever it “wants”.
I placed my concept on an old FLAK-Tower in the center of Vienna. Due to the fact that those huge Nazi anti-aircraft towers are nearly undestroyable and that they will penetrate the Viennese skyline for centuries, I thought the place suitable for an “urban parasite” which, same as the towers, just does not belong there!
