Interest in the Baukünstler in Vorarlberg continues uninterrupted, as is demonstrated by two new books published in cooperation with the Architekturzentrum Wien, the vai and the vorarlberg museum. These books are to be presented in an evening that promises a dense array of contents.
The two books ‘Rudolf Wäger. Baukünstler 1941–2019’ and ‘C4 Architekten — Fohn + Pfanner + Sillaber + Wengler’ close a gap in the processing of the history of Austrian architecture, especially the Vorarlberg success story. Continuing in the vein of the intergenerational dialogue we encountered in connection with our Vorarlberg exhibition (2019/20), the authors discuss the Baukünstler’s significance at that time and their relevance for the current generation with architecture critic and author Otto Kapfinger, as well as with the Vorarlberg architect Matthias Hein.
