Introduction to Stone Design.

This one-of-a-kind course on will take place in the creative hub of the New Design University (NDU) in partnership with the Michelangelo Foundation from Monday, Sept 5 to Friday, Sept 16, 2022 near Austria’s capital Vienna.

 

Guided by Austrian master artisans and designers, you will discover unique Austrian stones like marbles or serpentine and their application in design and architecture. You are invited to work on models and prototypes with stone and similar materials, merging traditional craftmanship with cutting edge design. We start with visiting some outstanding examples of stone design and architecture in Vienna followed by an introduction to the traditional stonemasonry craft. Guided by an expert designer and artisan, you will continue the course by applying the acquired knowledge in the execution of objects with unexpected use of stone, both individually and collectively. Your results will be shown at the end of the course in the creative setting of the NDU.
The Michelangelo Foundation, along with New Design University, invite motivated and talented students who want to improve their mastery of stone design to apply.


Introduction to the craft

Austria’s landscape offers unique marbles, serpentines and granites, the country has a long tradition of stone art and architecture. 2021 UNESCO has even included stonemasonry art and craft in the list of intangible cultural heritage of Austria. Stonecraft is also one of the oldest professions in human history, historical sites like the Egyptian pyramids, Angkor Wat or Stonehenge are proof of it.

Today’s cutting edge technologies fused together with traditional craft methods offer numerous possibilities and show a roadmap into the future of stone design and architecture.

This summerschool encourages you to learn about the properties of the material, discover the poetic qualities of stones, design and sculpt with it and to benefit from collaborating with artisans and designers. You will work on concepts that question the status quo to imagine new approaches and unexpected results!
