AHO Guest Lecture Fall 2022 - Architecture Uncomfortable Workshop

Lecture title: rude architecture - The plan, the workers and the dinner

In this lecture we will introduce the basic ideas and experiences of our office architecture uncomfortable workshop in relation to E.T.A. Hoffmanns 1818 short story Counsellor Crespel. This story - ever since reading it for the first time - surprised us not only in terms of overlaps with our own thoughts but even more so considering the motivation we could gain from the approach towards architecture portrayed in it. The lecture consists of three parts: The first part starts from the concept of the architectural plan, the second part focuses on the role of the worker as the one realizing the building, and the third part takes Counsellor Crespels “dinner in the built house" as a starting point. We will illustrate these ideas with our own projects and plans as well as the sources of inspiration that have continuously influenced the thinking of a.u.w.
Architecture uncomfortable workshop
Architecture uncomfortable workshop is a Budapest based architecture collective founded in 2012 by a group of young architects. 
Besides planning we always try to make experiments in small case projects.

One of the biggest motivators for us is the process of understanding contemporary vernacular architecture. Also, we are continuously looking for situations where comfort meets real human needs. While taking part in the production of objects and furniture, our idea of design has changed a lot over the years.

Our main interest lies in visual simplicity, specifically in simple methods of building (e.g. tools), which manifest themselves in built objects.
The process of constructing will have an impact on the final object, which –  as we believe –  is much more important.

Through design we search for the comfort situation: For us, the main aspect of architectural design is not form or function but the situation of balance between a person and their environment. This balance is our definition of architecture. Everything else is just a consequence of it.
