is more than the built space surrounding us.

Am I actually an architect?

My name is angelika hinterbrandner and I was trained as an architect but I hesitate whenever I have to answer this question. This is also due to the fact that the job description and self-understanding of an architect is still based on an object-bound nature. I can't—and most probably will never—live up to this claim. You won't find anything built here.

However, I am working in the field of architecture for 5+ years. Through pushing the topics I am interested in, I design my own job description. I think, talk and write about:

+ The influence of the economy, digitalization and politics on space.
+ What it means to be a woman in architecture and how to foster diversity in the field.
+ Labor conditions, remuneration and legal frameworks of architectural production. 

It is time to question seemingly "non-negotiable truths" in architecture and to fundamentally rethink the practice.  Enjoy scrolling through the fragments and contexts of my work, which result in a collage of topics that drive me.

Send me an email, if you have a collaboration or project in mind that you would like to discuss with me. 

I am currently available for small scale content production, workshops and consulting.
