transparadiso (Barbara Holub/ artist and Paul Rajakovics/ architect and urbanist) was founded in 1999 as a transdisciplinary practice in between architecture, urban design, urbanism and urban-artistic intervention. The projects range from design objects to architecture and complex issues of urban development and society with a focus on “research through practice”. In various collaborations transparadiso develops new artistic tools and strategies for "direct urbanism".

In 2007 transparadiso received the Otto-Wagner-Award for Urban Design and in 2012 it was awarded funding by departure for "direct urbanism" (

"Direct Urbanism" (German/ English) by transparadiso (with a text by Jane Rendell and an interview with Paul O'Neill and Mick Wilson) was published in 2013, Verlag für moderne Kunst Nürnberg. The publication "Planning Unplanned_Darf Kunst eine Funktion haben?_Towards a New Function of Art in Society" (eds. Barbara Holub/ Christine Hohenbüchler), Verlag für moderne Kunst Nürnberg, is forthcoming.
