Friedrich Achleitner. Architecture and Poetry

Panel discussion + party

As a member of the Wiener Gruppe, in the 1950s Friedrich Achleitner was among the legendary circle of young poets who broke with the conventions of descriptive literature with concrete texts (vernacular poetry, montage texts and constellations). “This conceit committed me for life”, admitted Achleitner later, “at least in the architecture sector I am pursuing a descriptive trade”. As he has also achieved and continues to achieve something unique in this sector — from the ‘Bausünden’ (Building Sins) to the several volumed ‘Österreichische Architektur im 20. Jahrhundert’ (Austrian Architecture in the 20th Century), we want to make an exception and show both sides of the author in combination: that of the poet and that of the architecture expert and writer, not least in order to congratulate the complete Achleitner on his 80th birthday.
