“ORTE Architekturnetzwerk Niederösterreich” annually grants a studio apartment in Krems as well as a scholarship financed by the Federal Province of Lower Austria to artists focusing their work on architecture. Prerequisite for a successful application is a degree in an architectural relevant discipline (architecture, landscape planning, city planning, urban planning, spatial planning, theorists and curators focusing their work on architecture etc.). The scholarship is linked to a final presentation of the on-site created work, which can also take up the own work or source-related architectural topics or current topics of the local architectural scene. German or English are assumed as languages of communication, travel costs will not be refunded. Austrian citizens and/or residents of Austria are excluded from the program. The scholarship is endowed with € 1,300 per month; duration of stay: selectively one to three months. ORTE is dedicated to contemporary architecture education and building culture issues in Lower Austria and is interested in practice-related projects. We are looking for concepts that focus on living environments and local interaction, and are less interested in purely theoretical and scientific work or ones that address international phenomena not directly or clearly related to Lower Austria.
