Emerging Architecture 3 - Kommende Architektur 3
Beyond Architainment

Location: Architekturzentrum Wien - Old hall
Exhibition: 21 November 2002 - 10 March 2003
Opening Hours: Daily 10:00 am - 7:00 pm, Wed until 9:00 pm
Opening: Wednesday 20 November 2002, 7pm

Each volume of the 'Emerging Architecture' series presents 10 teams of a younger generation in Austria. The third selection complements the previous exhibitions to form an 'Austrian trilogy'. 'Emerging Architecture' offers a supraregionally oriented showcase for ongoing positions and unfolds a dense spectrum of mentalities within the country. An exceptional diversity of new and autonomous positions elaborated from Vienna to Vorarlberg, and from Tirol to Styria, is thus concisely outlined with 30 teams and a total of 180 buildings and projects. Correspondence between claims and reality, ideas translated into materiality, served as a crucial criterion for the selection.

'Beyond Architainment' is the motto guiding this selection. The exhibition seeks promising quality rather than striking novelty. The architects presented here consequently and consistently develop quite different approaches - spatial, constructive, functional and creative themes of relevance - which they materialize in buildings that have already gained recognition among specialist circles but still await a broader echo.

'I am fascinated by teams who creatively and precisely work on overcoming the archtectonic object for the benefit of the architectonic condition; I have come to appreciate architecture that refrains from intentions to convey strong images or effects and whose objective is to form strong sensual aggregates.'
Otto Kapfinger, curator

With the book published by Springer, 'Emerging Architecture' offers an internationally oriented forum, sets oeuvres that to date are perceived rather dispersedly into compact analyses and profiles, and links up with the European scene by means of traveling exhibitions and lecture tours attended to by the Architekturzentrum Wien.

The exhibition will be introduced by:
Dietmar Steiner
Director Architekturzentrum Wien

Otto Kapfinger
Curator of the exhibition

Andreas Mailath-Pokorny
Senior Councillor for Culture and Humanities, Citiy of Vienna
