For 25 years the Architekturzentrum Wien has been showing what architecture can do — in educational events, research and the collection.

The Austrian architecture museum turns 25! Cause to celebrate and to look to the future. In the first part of the jubilee series we addressed our motto ‘What can architecture do?’ with Yvonne Farrell, Venice Biennale Curator. On this festive evening in September the focus is on the burning question: What can an architecture museum do?

Afterwards, we invite you to an exhilarating jubilee party in the Az W courtyard.

Michael Ludwig, Mayor of the City of Vienna

Hannes Swoboda, President of the Az W

Angelika Fitz, Director of the Az W
