ARTEC Architekten will deliver a lecture in Oris House of Architecture on Thursday, 5 May 2016 at 7 pm.
In the focus of a joint practice of Artec architects, which Bettina Götz and Richard Manahl have been running for many years, is the research of the possibilities of typologies, as well as materials, structures and, above all, space. The largest part of their work relates to housing projects, especially subsidized housing. However, no matter if they design social housing projects or luxurious apartments, they apply the same principles which are the result of the synthesis of relevant factors and aim for optimum living conditions.
Bettina Götz was born in Bludenz, Austria. 1980–87, architecture major at Graz University of Technology. Since 1987 she has been working in artec Architekten with Richard Manahl. Award of the City of Vienna for Architecture in 2005. Commissioner of the Austrian pavilion at the 11th Biennale in Venice. Since 2006 Professor at the Department of Design and Building Construction at the Berlin University of the Arts.
