Alexa Baumgartner (*1985, Bolzano) studied architecture in Innsbruck and Eindhoven.

Thus, she is part of the international research project on the Israeli architect Gerstel at the Insitute of Architectural Theory in collaboration with Mathieu Wellner. Her master’s thesis was priced with the START scholarship for architecture and design by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, the Arts and Culture. Since spring 2013 she is teaching at the Institute of Architectural Theory and researches in the field of the body in architecture, fashion and design of the Austrian avant-garde of the 1960s and 70s.
