Twelve iconic conceptual design drawings / visuals from architects of the 20th and 21st centuries (Kasimir Malevich, Theo van Doesburg, Le Corbusier, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Frederick Kiesler, Alison and Peter Smithson, Superstudio, Aldo Rossi, Peter Eisenman, Rem Koolhaas, Neil Spiller, Lebbeus Woods) were given.

Each students’ team selected one of the pictures; the first half of the studio was dedicated to literature research and writing, the second half was dedicated to large scale visual reproduction and translation.

The students were asked to do research on their selected image by redesigning it. The results were shown during the final presentation and ‘Rundgang’ exhibition at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna in January 2013.

The participating students were: Alice Bayandin, Luana Sophie Cortis, Yujing Cui, Henri Cullufe, Manuel Dornhege, Avin Fathulla, Nadja Götze, Ma­rio Kaya, Shun Sean Lam, Matej Malenka, Daniel Niens, Julian Nocker, Ömer Pe­kin, Desislava Petkova, Nikolaus Rach, David Rasner, Kay Sallier, Anna Scheer­mann, Doris Scheicher, Jasmin Schienegger, Paula Strunden, Lukas Wulz, Nikola Znaor.
