Salzburg, in between memory and contemporaneity

Diloma 2017


Salzburg closely matches Aldo Rossi’s definition of the “city of parts”; parts of the city conceived and designed, and which thanks to a very distinctive morphology and urban topography – despite different thematic and linguistic approaches – succeed in connecting to form a unified whole.

In Diploma 2017 no programmes will be set, recognising the architect's ability to find answers to questions raised during the exploratory phase of the research. Rather, the work will be accompanied by certain keywords, related to the idea of Stimmung (atmosphere) as Adolf Loos understood it. The final projects will then be exhibited at the Museum der Moderne in Salzburg in autumn 2017.
