  • Caterpillar

    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!

  • Ichneumonid: Subversive Parasitic Architecture
    vienna AUSTRIA

    University of Technology

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Herwig SCHERABON: Ichneumonid is a project about species mutation and insect morphology as an approach to architectural typology. It deals with the deconstruction and subversion of remnants from second world war. The design is based on insectoid aesthetics and entomological analysis of ichneumonidae, a parasitic wasp that affects its host by seeding eggs into the hosts body. The worms, that eclose from the eggs, break through the hosts skin and pupate on it. The architectural equivalent would be a parasitic building that grows from the inside of an existing building.
