Transbanana produces designs, concepts and studies for spaces,
mainly in the fields of architecture, research and urbanism.

Transbanana stands for new ways of doing and new forms of design in urban and territorial areas. Complex themes and research questions can be transformed into real projects.

New ways of creating means there is no tabu in using new tools
in our discipline to reach the right goal.

Community processes, urban development processes, urban memory, participation processes, public space, political urbanism and architecture as well as (post)colonial urbanism, transformation processes, spaces of conflicts in general and borderspaces are the fields of interest.

Originally, Transbanana was set up in Graz (Austria) in 1997 by Margarethe Mueller, Bernd Vlay and Paul Rajakovics. In 2000 it transformed to transbanana - Margarethe Mueller and went through another transformation process from 2001 to 2008, where transbanana worked together with Walter Kletzl as partner.

Transbanana is based in Vienna, however, the working space of transbanana is everywhere. This everywhere contains the real and the virtual world.

In 2020 Transbanana _ Research was founded. This is an NGO for the advancement of experimental methods in architecture, urbanism and culture. Transbanana _ Research aims to promote and carry out interdisciplinary research projects, artistic productions, and the planning and implementation of bordercrossing projects on socio-spatial phenomena. In particular, the cooperation between different scientific and artistic disciplines that have a research interest in the question of spatial production is to be intensified.
