Residency for architecture

ORTE Architekturnetzwerk Niederösterreich grants a studio apartment in Krems as well as a scholarship financed by the Federal Province of Lower Austria to architects, spatial planners, landscape architects, theorists and curators focusing their work on architecture.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.

Prerequisite for a successful application is a degree in an architectural relevant discipline (architecture, landscape planning, city planning, urban planning, spatial planning, etc.). ORTE focuses on the communication of contemporary architecture in Lower Austria and is therefore particularly interested in projects which are related to practice. Concepts with life-world focus as well as site-specific and theoretical approaches are desirable, not as much as a solely academic-scientific analysis of the medium architecture. 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.
Please enclose a concept (max. 1000 characters or free depiction) of your planned proposal, which describes your interest in the scholarship, with your application.
The scholarship is endowed with € 1.300,- per month.
