"Society in Motion" is a three years summer workshop series  together with students and researchers from Bergen Architecture School, Angewandte Wien and the University of Liechtenstein. The aim of the workshop is to investigate architectural and spatial challenges for new emerging society in motion from various perspectives. The workshops are supported by an Erasmus+ grant for strategic partnership for higher education.

Workshop 2019

Pendulum Alpine Rhine Valley. Everyday commuting about Liechtenstein

The nation of 37.600 has formed a perpetual inverse migration, where everyone returns to their homeland upgraded, but it's growth depends on commuters crossing and returning across the border each day. Today the workforce of Liechtenstein is 38.500 strong, more than double the resident working population. The consequence is spilled over in commuting across uncoordinated infrastructures of private and public transportation that are stretched to crisis and an acute need for new regional logics of coordination where today only village and national forms of government organisation exist. Whilst the broad phenomena of industrialisation and the urban sprawl has been widely documented, the 2019 «Societies in motion» Winter workshop will seek to uncover the spatial complexities that have evolved in response to the movement patterns of daily commuting in Liechtenstein. Multi-scalar explorations of various forms of mobility, using various interdisciplinary techniques, will provide opportunity to document and celebrate the story of commuting, and to propose enhancement through alternative spatially designed interventions.
The workshop is supported by an Erasmus+ grant for strategic partnership for higher education and will take place from February 1st to February 10th 2019 in Liechtenstein  together with students and researchers from Bergen School of Architecture, the University of Applied Arts Vienna and the University of Liechtenstein.
