The International Student Seminar in March 2019 was hosted by TU Wien and HLRS
for architecture students from Saga University and local students from TU Wien

A mixed group of architecture students from TU Wien (Austria) and Saga University (Japan) had the common task to design a student hub at TU Wien's campus Getreidemarkt with workplaces and catering for students.


The four groups with local and Japanese participants had only one week in Vienna to develop a basic design concept and acquire the necessary knowledge in 3D planning and visualisation before continuing the workshop in Stuttgart. The High Performance Computing Center (HLRS) in Stuttgart not only houses one of the most powerful HPCs in Europe but also accommodates a highly specialized visualisation department with world leading experts on virtual and augmented reality. Experiencing the digital architectural models in a 3D virtual environment was truly a unique opportunity for the participants and our staff.  
  
We cannot thank our colleagues in Stuttgart enough for their outstanding support and hospitality! This project would have not been possible without Uwe and Fabian from HLRS.
