BASEhabitat - architecture for development

“Today, we can build houses without sacrifice and restriction, which use the resources of a place instead of exploiting them, which enrich the environment instead of destroying it, and which thereby offer people decent living conditions.”

(Prof. Roland Gnaiger, Founder BASEhabitat)

The department of architecture at the University of Art and Design Linz is the smallest among Austria’s architecture schools. This means a high level of individuality and agility in coming to grips with questions addressing the built environment. Social, political, and economic development are central pillars of our program.


Since 2004, numerous research and building projects have emerged from the enthusiasm and engagement of students, lecturers and project partners.


In October 2018, the Master Architecture/BASEhabitat, with a particular focus on international, sustainable and collaborative architecture, starts.


BASEhabitat is a pioneer laboratory. Explore and develop with us the future of planning and building. Get involved!
