What is Architecture? (WIA), a small collection of interviews with influential architects from around Europe, seeks to “provide clear and concise information about architecture”, thereby “forming a panoramic view of today’s architectural thinking.” Set up by three students of architecture residing in Innsbruck, the WIA team have interviewed the likes of Patrik Schumacher (Zaha Hadid Architects), Sir Peter Cook (CRAB Studio), Jacob and Nathalie van Rijs (MVRDV), and Ben van Berkel (UNStudio). Their collection, though small, is continually expanding.

This en-route experience, a three city touring seminar on digital fabrication, draws a diverse group of design participants from afar for a full schedule of exchanges with leading practitioners, practices, fabrication labs… all while exposed to European transit infrastructure: trains planes & even a few mountain roads.
