Sandra Janser and Elisabeth Koller won first prize in the design competition: Design Month Graz 2010 project, “Ready. Steady. Go.” that called for a catalyst for the resettlement of the Jakomini district, in Graz, Austria, through the promotion of activities and attractiveness of the neighborhood through its revitalization. Their proposal was the installation of a visual frame, one that would serve as a marker for significant design areas with a visible and positive identity.

Villa 3S is located on a picturesque property on the fringes of Graz Geidorf. One of the fundamental ideas was to incorporate the relatively large property into the living space. Therefore, the design blurred the boundaries between house and garden creating fluid transitions and an extended exterior living space. The relatively strict land-use plan, which stipulated a saddle roof with a designated inclination, presented a further challenge. The roof form begins by folding on the southern terrace continues up and over the building structure and thereby forms an abstract saddle roof. This folding spatially differentiates the individual areas providing excitement. This also creates unique views from every angle of the home.

Media density is not congruent with urban density. Moreover it relentlessly expands seamlessly into suburban, rural, and rurban areas. Media Territories are describing the effects of independent densities with a surprising variety of stratifications hence challenging traditional categories. Features of public space like activism, consumerism, leisure, surveillance, to name just a few of the possible behaviors and plots are increasingly transforming Media Architecture.
The Media Architecture Biennale 2010 will link stakeholders willing to shape the evolution of Media Territories in Economy, Urbanism, Design, Arts and Architecture.
Media Architecture Biennale 2010 comprises an exhibition, a conference and workshops, which are closely coordinated. Some of the projects on exhibit are discussed in the context of the conference. Topics of the conference are illustrated by objects on exhibition. Events are planned so that they offer the best possible framework for the discussion of current topics, for getting to know each other and for the development of project ideas. It is planed to hold the event bi-annually in Vienna in the future.

For this family house, Vienna-based architecture firm Franz Architekten has divided the typical programmatic elements of a farmhouse – the residence, barn, and stables – into separate entities. Arranged as a series of shifted boxes, the dwelling consists of three independent components measuring 6.6m by 16.6 m. These volumes are connected with the main circulation path, a glazed hallway.
