Hi, my name is angelika hinterbrandner. 
I am a trained architect, working in a variety of roles, formats, and collaborations within and beyond the field of architecture. I deeply care about architecture and the built environment. Nevertheless, you won't find anything built here. 

In my research, I am currently focusing on the intersection of the political economy of housing and spatial qualities of space. Furthermore, I am investigating new professional realities and building processes of architects responding to the climate crisis.

Since 2019, I've been part of @kntxtr. As of 2021, I'm researching and teaching at ETH Zurich. Currently at the Chair for Architecture Heritage & Sustainability Prof. Mariam Issoufou. In 2022, I co-initiated with five other individuals from the fields of architecture, urbanism, research, and communication. The initiative advocates for affordable, sustainable, and equitable access to housing for the 99%.

In my work, I strive to create content that is accessible and engaging, and that can inspire and inform individuals and organizations alike. I'm passionate about learning and knowledge-sharing, whether through workshops, presentations, or other interactive formats.

I see myself as a mediator, working to bridge gaps between different groups and communities. I believe that bringing people together to share ideas and collaborate on projects is crucial to fostering positive change. Ultimately, my goal is to create spaces and structures that enable people to learn, connect, and work together toward a better future for everyone. 

Selected Projects

Workshop: Common Discourse


Common Discourse: Laboratory for Spatial Transformation is a workshop format taking place on 01–03 September 2023 at Floating University & Haus der Statistik.

Let's work together.


I initiate and consult on knowledge transfer in the field of the built environment. The development of accessible and engaging content and formats as well as project management and facilitation are core parts of my daily work. Just like podcastingpublishingspeaking & moderating, developing workshops & other teaching formats. Topic-wise, I am focussing on the political economy of housing and spatial practitioners' responses to the climate crisis.
