Architecture in Austria in the 20th and 21st Centuries

Revised, updated, and expanded by nearly a hundred projects, this new edition of the catalog for the Architekturzentrum Wien’s permanent exhibition on Austrian architecture is the authoritative survey of the country’s architects, buildings, and styles. 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 movements. Including a timeline, an overview of all relevant media since 1836, brief biographies, and an index, this is the definitive reference for Austrian architecture during the last two centuries.
