In the era of artificial intelligence, it is particularly important to consider the architect’s social role and societal responsibility. What social skills does a designer employ to realize their visions of a better future? How is trust built within a design team and beyond the field?  

In the ninth season of the Architecture Speaks lecture series, organized jointly by Aalto University and the Museum of Finnish Architecture, Professor Jenni Reuter invites six architects or architectural groups to share insights into their design processes and their roles in the world of architecture.  

“In their small-scale projects, the Austrian architectural office Innauer Matt focuses on the detailing of wood materials, minimalist ornamentation, and materiality. Their projects exude a subtle and tranquil enchantment,” describes Jenni Reuter.

Innauer Matt 

Innauer Matt Architects, based in the Bregenzerwald, a mountainous valley in Western Austria, stand for architecture with a strong relation to an object’s location, its natural surroundings and its inhabitants. Markus Innauer and Sven Matt (both born in 1980) founded their office in 2012 and have since come up with atmospherically dense, yet subtle and detailed architectural solutions that always strive to connect the novel with the existing.

Their high standards of precision combined with a certain laid-back approach leads to surprisingly plain solutions in often complex conditions. Always in the focus of their work is the search for architecture that provides surroundings with a relaxed, familiar feel to them and that will stand the test of time.
