Architecture in Vorarlberg since 1980
A guide on remarkable 260 buildings
by Otto Kapfinger

The strength of the architectural scene in Vorarlberg is the structural perception, the development of space resulting from construction and use. A lot of the buildings are special for they do not want to be anything but optimal standards for everyday life. The compact volume offers the first comprehensive presentation of this regional focus of contemporary architecture in Europe
366 pages, 420 illustrations, 200 plans
