In this lecture, Ulrika Karlsson will address her specific interest in architectural representations and their translations, where the representation of the architectural object sometimes coincides with the object itself. The coincidence of the object and its representation sometimes leads to the conflation of material and information. Karlsson pursues this interest through projects in her architectural practice as well as research.
Ulrika Karlsson is an architect and founding member of the architectural design and research collaboratives Brrum and servo stockholm. She is professor of architecture at KTH School of Architecture, Stockholm, where she previously served as the Director of the Architecture programme. Karlsson has been a professor at the University of Arts, Craft and Design, Stockholm, and taught at Bartlett, London, and UCLA, Los Angeles. She received her master degree in architecture from Columbia University and landscape architecture degree from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.
Karlsson has received several prestigious research grants, including from the Swedish Research Council and the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts. Her projects and written work has been widely published - including in Arq, Perspecta, Via, Arkitektur and AD. Her work has been exhibited at the Venice Architecture Biennale, the Centre Pompidou, ArkDes, SFMoMA, and the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. Servo’s work is part of the permanent collections of SFMoMA and the FRAC Centre.

Architectural design is influenced and restricted by several different fields like program, function, politics, client, software, construction process, climate, sustainability and last but not least budget. To transform an idea into a building is a lengthy procedure with several drawbacks and obstacles. But also the process of designing is changing through the introduction of digital tools, ways of teaching and impacts from other fields like movie, advertising, media and art. It uncovers both possibilities and vulnerability to the ownership of the design process and its outcome.
For example parametric design based on pure algorithmic thinking without clear relationship between design intend and design response is mostly used to justify complex geometries and structures without challenging the question of the actual quality of the work. It should not replace or dis-empower the designer’s creative freedom and make the architect loose the ownership of the work (Werk). It should only act as another tool to enhance and open up the designer’s creative ingenuity. The same applies to other fields like structural engineering, MEP and construction. The architect always has to keep ahead of the design process and challenge its fellow consultants to achieve the best in aesthetics for the final project. The lecture “Design to build” will review the design process and its impact on recent work completed by the firm studioGA.
StudioGA is an award-winning architectural firm based in Munich, Germany. It has won numerous competitions in places like Düsseldorf, Bremen, Austria and Lithuania and has implemented over 20 projects. Over the past fifteen years, studioGA’s project portfolio has been expanding internationally both within and outside of Central Europe, including locations in Russia and China. The firm’s highly competent and experienced staff from across the globe provide holistic and high-quality design services, including but not limited to the initial planning assessment, conceptual design, construction documentation, and administration, as well as interior, furniture and landscape design. With its strength in large-scale facilities, studioGA strives to maximize “added architectural values” to each project that might otherwise be merely an “efficient-but-boring box.”
studioGA creates dynamic, awe-inspiring spaces through complex geometries or through simple logic. The company skillfully optimizes details and construction strategies to achieve these complexities and to successfully carry through on the initial design intents. Unlike large, corporate architectural firms, studioGA is dedicated to ensuring that all clients receive personal care while also achieving one-of-a-kind architecture.
StudioGA believes that a strong owner-architect relationship is equally essential to our competencies in order for long-lasting benefits for investors and operators.

Michael Young is a founding partner of the architectural design studio Young & Ayata and Assistant Professor at the Cooper Union in New York. On his return visit to Städelschule, Young will speak about our contemporary image culture:
‘As we bluntly evaluate our digital image culture and its ceaseless flow through Internet dissemination, it becomes more and more difficult to divide the production of architectural representation into two clear cut species. The images formerly known as drawings are behaving socially more and more like the images formerly known as photographs. It is apparent that the way architecture has used to value certain genres of representation over others will no longer be sufficient for our current situation. In order to have some modicum of hope for architectural discourse and pedagogy within this image deluge, it may be necessary to question several of our disciplinary assumptions regarding the fear of the image. Specifically, when considering images, we may need to look a little closer at photography's relation to realism, at digital vs. mechanical reproduction, and at the ties between aesthetics and politics.’
Young & Ayata were awarded a Design Vanguard Award from Architectural Record for 2016 and received a first place prize to design the new Bauhaus Museum in Dessau, Germany, in 2015. Their work has been widely exhibited internationally, and Michael Young is with his writing on image culture, geometry and sensation in relation to aesthetic discourse a frequent contributor a various publications. Young has taught at numerous universities and been a Visiting Assistant Professor at Princeton University, and the Louis I. Kahn Visiting Assistant Professor at Yale University, as well as a visiting professor at Shih Chien University in Taipei, Taiwan, and the Crete Technical University in Greece. Michael received his Master's Degree from Princeton University and a Bachelor of Architecture from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
