Opening Az West

Dietmar Steiner, Director Az W
Andreas Mailath-Pokorny, Municipal Councillor for Culture and Science

The Az W is expanding its radius of activity and dedicating more attention on a permanent basis from now on to the diverse spectrum of contemporary architecture in Austria. With the new exhibition space at 35 Flachgasse in the 15th District, only minutes away from the Az W by public transport with the U3, the Architekturzentrum Wien has acquired a new venue for presentations capable of reacting spontaneously to exciting developments in Austrian architecture while also being a space for experiments or simply a platform for self-presentations.


Opening of the Exhibition
“Young Blood. I’m a Young ‘Austerian’ Architect!”

Igor Kovacevic, Director CCEA
Burkhard Schelischansky, Young Blood Austria

The exhibition presents eight positions held by emerging architects from Austria – eight standpoints that are formulated as sound bytes, or slogans for the exhibition, and as a basis for discussion.
