Hans Hollein, Pritzker Prize winner and self-proclaimed 1960s avant-gardist, was a meticulous curator of his own work in his lifetime. Nearly ten years after his death, Hollein Calling presents a wealth of previously unpublished material from his key projects and, through a dialogue with the work of a contemporary generation, lays the ground for a reassessment that brings Hollein’s thinking and building back into the current discourse.
