THINKarchitecture

Thinkarchitecture is a team of architects and cultural theorists who live and work in London and Vienna. Principal members of ThinkArchitecture are Peter Mörtenböck and Helge Mooshammer.

In the past ten years ThinkArchitecture has developed and carried out a vast range of interdisciplinary art/architecture projects in the urban realm, including work in London’s Borough of Southwark (Authorising Space), a derelict factory site in Vienna (7 Days in Paradise), the Brooklyn Bridge anchorage in New York (CruiseScapes) and various other urban areas. Working with communities on site ThinkArchitecture generates dialogues through workshops, exhibitions and public debates, and produces makeshift architectural structures for temporary inhabitation.

ThinkArchitecture has contributed to international exhibitions in Argentina, Austria, Estonia, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Russia and the USA. The practice has been nominated for the annual art incentive prize of the Rietveld Academy Amsterdam / Sandberg Institute, 1999, Best British Architectural Practice, 2000 and has been awarded renowned fellowships and prizes. Books include Die virtuelle Dimension (2001), Visuelle Kultur (eds., 2003), Cruising: Architektur, Psychoanalyse und Queer Cultures (2005) and the forthcoming Networked Cultures (2008).
