ORTE Architekturnetzwerk Niederösterreich
Steiner Landstraße 3
A 3500 Krems | Austria
’ORTE Architekturnetzwerk Niederösterreich’ annually grants a studio apartment in Krems as well as a scholarship financed by the Federal Province of Lower Austria to artists focusing their work on architecture. ORTE is dedicated to contemporary architecture education and building culture issues in Lower Austria and is interested in practice-related projects. They are looking for concepts that focus on living environments and local interaction, and are less interested in purely theoretical and scientific work or ones that address international phenomena not directly or clearly related to Lower Austria.
The providing of a studio apartment for free as well as the awarding of a scholarship by the Federal Province of Lower Austria are based on the following premises: enabling artists from abroad to work in Austria and to get to know the architectural scene of Lower Austria. A jury of experts selects the applicants to be accepted into the AIR architecture program. Scholarship recipients are required to reside in Krems for a minimum of 80% of the scholarship duration.
The scholarship is linked to a final presentation of the on-site created work, which can also take up the own work or source-related architectural topics or current topics of the local architectural scene.
There are 5 studio apartments and a large common studio on the top floor.
