‘Reports from the Borderlands’ is a rather loose collection of different architectural designs and graphic experiments from 2019-2021, exploring different tools of representation and animation to imagine abandoned realms and rather post-apocalyptic landscape scenarios.

Landscape initially emerges as anomalies in an ordered grid. Through densification and fractures, a topography slowly emerges that needs to be explored.

Work with me

I work interdisciplinary and in an experimental way.

Do you have an interesting Project, that needs help in its graphic communication? Do you need a full visual identity with a website, logo, branding? You are an artist looking for collaboration? Just send me your request and let’s start thinking together!

Hello, I’m Ferdinand –  architectural designer currently living and working in Vienna, Austria. I recently graduated with a Master’s degree in Architecture from the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, where I focused on the relationship between city and landscape, the motif of the garden, and the hidden worlds and ecologies that unfold in intersecting spaces.
