Congress Centrum Alpbach
Culture / Vernissage

’Which books have inspired you recently?’ We will put this question to this year’s speakers and collate an open access library based on their recommendations, giving you the chance to get to know the speakers from a completely new angle. Browse books from all sorts of genres and languages – from prose and poetry to specialist publications. The Alpbach Speakers’ Library is open to all.

Dr., DI David CALAS

Managing Director, Studio Calas, Vienna; Lecturer, University of Technology, Vienna

 David Calas, architect, urbanist and former lecturer at the TU Vienna - Faculty of Architecture, operates between the blurring boundaries of urban planning, architecture, art and politics. Focus of his work at Studio Calas is the relation of design practice and socio-cultural process. The modus operandi concentrates on accessible and clearly communicated design approaches and the implementation of digital inquiry strategies.
