WHAT WE DO
We are interviewing the world's leading architectural designers and thinkers to learn their opinion about what architecture is and what it can do. Our goal is to provide clear and concise information about architecture from the viewpoint of the contemporary protagonists and thus form a panoramic view of today's architectural thinking.
WHO WE ARE
Julie Marthe Hoffmann was born in 1987 in Luxembourg. She studied architecture in Innsbruck where she finished her master with honor in July 2015 . From 2012 until 2014 she worked at the Institute of Spatial Design as a student assistant. Since late 2015 she is working at „2001 architecture“ as a junior architect, gaining new experience and extending her knowledge in the field. Her main themes circle around the individual and human in architecture, both in design and interpersonal manner. She relies on her intuition to elicit personal aspects from her counterpart and she doesn't shy away from asking a question twice.
Luca De Giorgi was born 1987 in Italy. He studied architecture in Madrid and Innsbruck where he finished his master in late 2014. From 2011 until 2014 he was working as a student assistant and external teacher under Prof. Peter Trummer at the Institute of Urban Design, which mainly influenced his perspective on architecture as a discipline. Since 2015 he is travelling and working in Europe and Asia and has published a guidebook and a collection of articles about Southeast Asia. His main topics deal with the different theoretical approaches of the last two decades, questioning the role of the architect in different cultures.
Olaf Holger Grawert was born 1987 in Austria. After working in fashion industry he decided to study architecture in Innsbruck, where he is currently doing his master. From 2011 until 2015 he was working as a student assistant and junior researcher under Prof. Bart Lootsma at the Institute of Architectural Theory. His projects and themes deal with architecture and communication, both in built and theoretical manner. Still influenced by the ideas of fashion industry he is questioning the ambivalent relation between identity and architecture / the city.
