Biographical note / the next ENTERprise - architects
The provocation of the random and the unpredictable is our strategy in approaching the spatial and programmatic aspects of architecture. We work at discovering the factors leading beyond pure functionality - it is how we see the essence of architecture.
Ernst J. Fuchs and Marie Therese Harnoncourt founded the next ENTERprise - architects in 2000 in Vienna. They have cooperated - with other partners - since the early 1990s.
From the beginning the next ENTERprise has operated in a field that ranges from experimental installations (Blindgänger 2000; Audiolounge 2002; Trinkbrunnen 2003) to architectural practice (Zirl House 1997; Underground swimming pool, Vienna 2001 - with Florian Haydn; Lakeside bath, Caldaro / Kaltern, 2006) treating both approaches as equal and mutually influential. The two latest projects are the Open-Air Pavilion for Grafenegg Castle Park, opened in 2007 and the new Thermal Bath in Villach Warmbad currently at the planning stage.
the next ENTERprise (tnE) has held teaching engagements in Vienna, Innsbruck, Linz, Bratislava and Paris. Work by the studio has been widely exhibited and published (Venice Biennale 2006 and 2004; 5th Biennale for Architecture, São Paulo / Brazil, 2003; Archilab 5, Orléans 2003; Latent Utopias, Graz 2002; FINN_topo, Helsinki 2009).
the next ENTERprise studio was nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Award in both 2009 and 2007.The Open-Air Pavilion in Grafenegg was granted the Clients' Award of the Austrian Architects Association in 2007 and the Baupreis (2nd prize) in 2009.
The first monograph of the next ENTERprise 'Close to the Bone' was published
(DD22, Damdi Architecture Publishing Co., South Korea.) in 2007.
