With your donation you support the preservation of Austria’s architectural heritage. A good investment, as the architecture in the AzW collection is most definitely not a real estate bubble!
Architecture affects all of us. From the living room to the office building to the public [more] green spaces we enjoy or the streets along which we move – the design of our surroundings influences practically all areas of our lives. To understand our current living environment and to draw lessons from it for the future we must be able to trace the development of architecture.
The Architekturzentrum Wien is the sole institution in Austria that is devoted to the continuous and intensive examination and preservation of the architectural history of modernism in this country. With its design drawings, plans, sketch books, photos and models the valuable collection of the AzW documents the important epochs in the history of Austrian architecture. It includes exceptional designs, pioneering buildings, previously little-known gems, and unique works by, for the most part, Austrian architects, and helps to secure the architectural legacy of the future as a basis for our national identity.
There are many different reasons that can motivate you to make a donation. Join the circle of supporters. Your donation – no matter what size – is an expression of your solidarity with the Architekturzentrum Wien and helps us to finance and continue our collecting activity.
