Giacomo Pala is an architect and researcher. Currently a Research Assistant at the Intitute of Architectural Theory, University of Innsbruck, Austria, where he co-conducts the “ArchiFicture” studio under the direction of Bart Lootsma. PhD student under the guidance of Peter Trummer at the same university, his interests lie at the intersection of architectural theory, history and design. More specifically, he is conducting a research about ways of looking at history as a non-linear narrative that can be used as a design method - parachronism - as well as a tool for speculation: a new contemporary way of dealing with canons and mimetic references. Beyond his academic career, he has worked in several offices, including Coop Himmelb(l)au and in 2013, he has co-founded the cultural association Burrasca.
Jörg Stanzel is an architect, designer and researcher living and practicing in Innsbruck (AT). His current architectural research deals with the idea of the real and the fake in the architectural world, its influence on our design-methods and on the interpretation of the architectural object. He graduated in 2019 with Prof. Peter Trummer, at the University of Innsbruck's Institute of Urban Design (IOUD), whose team he is joining for the current semester. He is collaborating with
design- and architecture-studios, such as Swarovski, developing digital tools, computational design and visualizations. Beyond his academical interests he has work-experience at several architectural offices including UN-Studio (Amsterdam) and GRAFT-architects (Berlin).
