In spring 2012, the University of Applied Arts, Vienna, issued an international competition to overhaul the campus of the Angewandte, a group of buildings that house the University as well as the Museum for Applied Arts in Vienna, Austria. The competition became the center of a polemic debate marking both the end and beginning of an entirely different architectural landscape in the city of Vienna, the repercussions of which are still unraveling today. This symposium aims to discuss the architectural outcome and the political ramifications of the fragility of an intellectual project.
