The Interdisciplinary Centre for Urban Culture and Public Space (SKuOR) at the Faculty of
Architecture and Planning of Vienna University of Technology, Austria, has recently
launched a Call for Interests regarding two short-term City of Vienna Visiting
Professorship vacancies offered to deal with the annual topic 2010 'Urban culture, public
space and the state - Politics and planning' in Vienna.
The call is addressed to two experts, one being rooted in the field of Know How (spatial
planning/ spatial design, or similiar), the other one in the field of Know Why (urban
studies, or similar). Both luminaries are thought to work together as an academic team
consisting of one junior and one senior professor.
In close cooperation with the direction of the SKuOR, this team will develop its focus at
the interface between theory and practice to foster creative methods and a constructive
understanding towards more explorative and innovative approaches in spatial research
and spatial planning.
This group of scholars consisting of both City of Vienna Visiting Professors and the local
SKuOR team will develop and realize a joint annual programme as regards research,
teaching and academic networking for the academic year 2010 (1st March 2010 bis 28th
February 2011) in the combined thematic fields of urban culture and public space.
