Graz, Austria
wohnlabor is a collective of young architects and engineers exploring the role of habitation in contemporary and future ways of life. The members of wohnlabor are involved in both architectural practice as well as academic research on related topics. In their own practice wohnlabor aims to connect users and specialists through encouraging collaboration between inhabitants and experts in the fields of architecture and engineering, sociology and anthropology as well as urbanism and policy-making.

Exploring alternative perspectives on habitation through collective design practice.

  • Systemic changes

‘wohnlabor’ is an interdisciplinary collective concerned with the role of habitation in cultivating future-proof, human-centered ways of life.

Against the background of complex structures and processes in glocal space-time networks our collective focuses on initiating systemic changes through interventions on a local level.

Exploring possibilities within the architectural domain we utilize a critical design approach, interdisciplinary cooperations and participatory design workshops to collect, create and analyse alternative perspectives on human cohabitation in a global context.

Through our work we aim to support and inform the transformation towards regenerative and resilient ways of providing the human right of housing within Earth’s planetary boundaries.

With open formats like the wohnlabor open lab week we stimulate intersubjective discourse on the various challenges and potentials of cohabitation in the 21st century.
