Activity in the building sector in Vienna during the 1980s was marked by large business architecture firms — there were hardly any competitions. Young architects were left with time to think about architecture, as well as with small commissions, like bars, shops or home conversions. However the entire theoretical discourse was invested in this “small architecture” — which is charged with details making historical and ironic allusions and hidden messages, and executed to the most exacting standards.
