Best of Austria. Architecture 2012_13

This year, for the fourth time, “Best of Austria. Architecture 2012_13”, a biennial publication issued by the Architekturzentrum Wien, presents an impressive overview of the production of architecture and current architectural achievements in Austria.

With texts in both English and German this lavishly illustrated publication presents around 170 projects which in the past two years have received various architecture awards – national and international. The buildings are explained by means of photographs, selected plans and short texts by well-known authors. Concise portraits of exceptional individuals and teams of architects are also presented. An essay by Vera Grimmer offers an analysis of Austrian architecture and the culture of building as seen from outside the country. The book is rounded off by a detailed index that provides all the relevant information about the prizes.

outstanding artist award – experimental tendencies in architecture 2014

Since 1988 the most important prize for innovative architecture in Austria has been awarded every two years by the Austrian Federal Chancellery and is being organised this year for the first time by the Architekturzentrum Wien. This competition is intended to showcase architecturally ambitious, conceptually profound, forward-looking positions and to make them accessible to a wider public.
At the award ceremony the winning project and 3 honourable mentions will be announced and, together with 10 remarkable nominated projects, will be presented in an exhibition. The project panels with photographs, drawings and comments and models reveal a remarkable wealth of idea and a delight in experiment and present new conceptual and constructional approaches.
