Architecture Competition Caramel Shore Traveller Rooms Honorable mention – Anselm Kranebitter

We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to one of our Honorable mention winner for our "Caramel Shore Traveller Rooms" competition –  Anselm Kranebitter from Austria!

Anselm Kranebitter from Austria

After graduating from the HTL in civil engineering, I studied architecture at the Vienna University of Technology. In 2017, I was awarded the Pfann- Ohmann Prize for my bachelor’s thesis with the theme "Church on the shore of nullity". In 2018, I once more received the Pfann-Ohmann-Prize for the project "Wohnen Aebimatt" in Bern. I have also contributed to exhibitions in Vienna, Linz and Graz, and New York. I graduated in architecture in 2021 with the thesis "Loss of alpine building culture". Since 2015, I have focused on independent activity in the field of architecture furniture, model, and object construction.

Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance, what scale have you focused on/preferred, any significant projects where the company/ individuals have been involved?

We like to think about projects holistically, not only theoretically and academically, but also in terms of craftsmanship to the last detail. Projects that we can handle in size are also executed by us. Basically, we deal with everything from a single screw to furniture, to houses, as larger projects slip away quickly and you cannot vouch for everything.

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

Architects have a great role to play in society – after all, we spend most of our lives in a building. Architects should be aware of their collective clout and take a stance accordingly, even if it means saying no from time to time.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

Because of the possibility to develop ideas quickly. A good exercise to remind yourself that you do not always have to think about every screw. It is only about the effective transport of an idea.

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture competitions?

Do it, what’s the worst that can happen?
