Univ. Prof. Arch DI Kathrin Aste

Kathrin Aste is an Austrian architect and researcher. She taught and researched at several architecture schools. From 2014 to 2018 she was the chairperson of the GLC platform at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Currently she leads the ./studio3 and is head of the Institute for Experimental Architecture at the University of Innsbruck. Her unit researches at the juxtaposition between art and architecture and speculates about new design approaches. Therefore, architecture is understood as an artistic discipline and the design process as a creative cultural technique - generating knowledge.

Since 2009 she runs the office LAAC together with Frank Ludin. LAAC takes on design responsibility in the fields of architecture, landscape design and urban planning always regarding art, culture and society. Additional to the architectural practice, LAAC negotiates architectural practice, teaching and research. In 2018 LAAC represented Austria at the Venice Architecture Biennale. http://www.laac.eu/
