Full Description

Revised, updated, and expanded by nearly 100 projects, this new edition of the catalogue for the “a_show,” Architekturzentrum Wien’s (Az W) permanent exhibition on Austrian architecture of the 20th and 21st century, has become a stand-alone reference book. Its scope extends beyond the themes of the exhibition. Apart from condensing the current discourse on Austrian architecture of the last 150 years, it also documents relevance and singularity of the Az W collection.

Featuring more than 2,300 images and plans, accompanied by explanatory texts structured chronologically as well as thematically the book points out both historical connections and contemporary tendencies. Paired with a timeline, and also offering an overview of all relevant media since 1836, brief biographies, and an index, this is the authoritative survey of modern and contemporary Austrian architecture.
