Universität Liechtenstein
School of Architecture
Universität Liechtenstein
Thomas Deckker was a visiting professor in the School of Architecture at Universität Liechtenstein from 1996 to 2002. This period coincided with the school moving to the Spörryfabrik, a disused textile factory in Vaduz, from the previous school buildings, and the transition from an Ingenierschule to a Fachhochschule and then to a Universität.
workshops
The workshops had two themes. One theme was an engagement with the disused textile factory as an interior landscape space. They built up in complexity from a simple workshop re-using textiles to create personal places within the interior sapce to an Erasmus exchange in which complete wood structures were built over the course of a week. The second theme was urban design, which again built up in complexity from simple massing studies to an Erasmus exchange in Shoreditch, with a full urban study and proposals. Thomas Deckker set up a temporary school in a disused warehouse in Shoreditch with Andrew Waugh, Fenella Collingridge and Elden Croy for this project.

Thomas Deckker was also involved in curriculum development at Universität Liechtenstein. The programme notes above show his first ideas for a post-graduate research Institute of Alpine Studies, which could attract post-graduate students and research funding. This became the Alpenrheintal Institute, for studies in the Alpine Rhine Valley.
