Marie Schamboeck works in between literature and architecture, formerly based at the Chair for Architectural Theory and Philosophy of Technics at Technical University Vienna and various theatre productions. She currently works as an assistant at Herzog & de Meuron, is part of Neues Kino Basel and publishes literary texts under the name of Fransa Routhin (e.g. in Jenny. Ausgabe 03 – Denken, Behaupten, Großtun, 2015, and the artist book Shellpunk, 2017).
