Ottokar Uhl is considered one of the major protagonists of Austrian architecture in the second half of the 20th century. His work focuses on innovation in church building and the development of participatory models for housing developments. Uhl’s complete oeuvre shows an understanding of building as a participatory process and incorporates the notion of change through usage as an integral element of the architecture.
With a focus on the central themes in the oeuvre of Ottokar Uhl, the exhibition attempts to provide a contemporary look at his work. The buildings on the agenda for the tour are representative examples of substantial areas in his work.
