Join The University of Texas School of Architecture with Chris Precht, of Precht, Salzburg, for a lecture on “Wandering & Wondering” live-streamed on the Texas Architecture YouTube channel.
Chris Precht is a father to his son Tio, a husband to his wife Fei, and an architect at Studio Precht in the mountains of Austria. Operating a studio in the mountains, far from the next city, can be challenging, especially setting it up as a young couple with big dreams but no clients. Now, four years and one pandemic later, Studio Precht can reflect on those dreams, challenges, failures, and benefits, and they can wonder what opportunities lie ahead for a new generation of architects. Studio Precht is a young office that takes pride in speaking up with a fresh voice. For this generation, architecture is not about styles, forms, -isms, or academic theories anymore; we have more urgent issues to solve.
