Summer Festival and Exhibition

The Faculty of Architecture at TU Graz invites you to the annual summer party “GRAZ Open Architecture”: exhibitions of student works, live bands, and delicious food await on the Campus Alte Technik on June 30, 2017. It’s also worthwhile taking a look inside the new master studios on the top floor.

Summer, sun and architecture
Entitled “Summer Party and Exhibition - GRAZ Open Architecture 17”, the Faculty of Architecture at TU Graz presents students’ works and projects from the 2016/17 winter and summer term. The dean’s office of architecture, the thirteen institutes of architecture, and the drawing halls invite staff, students, schoolgoers and anyone interested in architecture to take a look at the students’ projects and to celebrate the end of term together on June 30 starting at 11am.

From Park to Attic
Live acts, delicious food, various bars, and prize-giving ceremonies ensure a festive summer atmosphere on the Campus Alte Technik. All institutes of architecture will be opening their doors at Rechbauerstraße 12 and Lessingstraße 25. There will also be presentations in the park and courtyard of the Alte Technik. For the little visitors, for the first time there will be a special programme in the form of a Living Street. Another special highlight: the party will extend right up the roof of the Alte Technik – with initial insights into the newly converted master studios on the attic floor. This year, the exhibition of student works is also open on Saturday after the party, on July 1, from 10am.

The winner of this year’s poster competition is Helena Eichlinger, a student of TU Graz.
