Born in Vienna on 20 June 1951, Auböck is the daughter of the Austrian industrial designer and architect Carl Auböck (1925–1993) who was himself the son of the designer and painter Carl Auböck(1900–1957). She studied architecture at the Vienna University of Technology, specializing in urban development. Thereafter she attended the Technical University of Munich on a research grant.[1]

From 1985 to 2000, Auböck lectured on garden and landscape architecture at the Vienna University of Technology as well as in Innsbruck and Munich. Since 1999, she has been a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich, specializing in landscape architecture and outdoor design.[3] In 1985, she founded her own studio in Vienna, where she was joined by János Kárász in 1987. Now known as Auböck + Kárász, the firm provides architectural services in the areas of open-space planning, parks, historic gardens and outdoor urban design and renovation.[1]
