April 15, 2015 | Lecture | Laura Spinadel: 'To believe in urban "miracles"!'

Since starting out with a humanistic, theosophical and sensualist vision, architect Laura P. Spinadel has moved towards a holistic and ecological position, that seeks to put maximum emphasis on the health of open and closed spaces, as well as on the requirements and principles of bio-construction. Holistic thinking implies profoundly replacing rational and analytical thought with a more inclusive thinking, in which all factors are taken into account, even those that seem trivial or invisible, such as perception, health or freedom.
Laura P. Spinadel and her team from BUSarchitektur set one of the most important examples for urban planning in Vienna during the past decades. Based on the master plan from Laura P. Spinadel the campus of the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU) stands out due to its extraordinary urban and architectural quality.
