Monash Art Design & Architecture

Dotting the global landscape, decommissioned military installations are leaving their mark - symbols of triumph, pride, pain and the unforeseen consequences of military aggression. These abandoned structures and ghost towns disrupt neighborhoods and split entire communities. Architecture for Humanity is hosting the 2011 Open Architecture Challenge [UN]RESTRICTED ACCESS - a competition to re-envision the future of these places. This is an invite to the global design community to reclaim these spaces for social, economic, and environmental good.

In particular, the studio asks to develop innovative solutions to re-envision the Vienna Flak Towers, one of the eight complexes of large, above-ground, anti-aircraft gun blockhouse rowers that were used by the Luftwaffe to defend the city against Allied air-raids and shelter thousands of people.

ARC 4001 + 5001
Mondays and Thursdays from 3 to 6pm
