  • EXCESSIVE diplomas & semester finals
    vienna AUSTRIA

    EXCESSIVE focuses on strategies of architectural design. Many of the ambitions revolve around the topic of excess as a redefinition of beautiful lust and—misfit aesthetics of exuberance and sophisticated conditions of arousal. If design is typically derived from an expertise related to form and proportion, a theory of mutation is possibly an advanced critical stance toward formal traditions. A theory of excessive form is not a rejection of the formal traditions but an extension of them. Further, navigation through the topologies of excessive form can be understood as an intensification of more traditional formal strategies.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    shahira HAMMAD: This project represents my thesis for the “Excessive” postgraduate program at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, 2012. We were asked to envision a new train station for Vienna, one that would either modify or replace the existing Westbahnhof train station. I chose to keep the existing building, but to contaminate it with structures that would express a complexity that now is missing. My intervention was inspired both from Nature and Culture, and beyond its polemical characteristics it does intend to bring back what in science is called: Spontaneous Order.

    santosh kumar KETHAM: Historically Vienna is known for its operas and concerts for music lovers. Designing a concert hall in this place is challenging and inspiring.

    To me the challenge was to design a concert hall not only as a single architectural building but also as experiencing spaces through urban transition, At same time the design is unique from other music halls, in terms of architectural esthetics, vocabulary and tectonics.
