The Krier Era in Vienna

An evening With Rob Krier

Wed 25.02.2009, 19:00-21:00

The Krier Era in Vienna

(in German)

The Luxemburg architect and sculptor Robert Krier (born in 1938), professor at Vienna University of Technology since 1976, brought a romantic variation of the postmodern discussion on urban development to Vienna with his designs based on striking imagery, studies and publications. Krier has influenced a whole generation of architecture students without resorting to the creation of anything approaching a formal school. What he taught, the experiences gleaned by his former students and the ‘lessons’ they learned in their time with him are the topic of this evening. A brief talk by the architect, who currently lives in Berlin, is followed by a panel discussion with his former fellow campaigners from his time in Vienna to bring a long insufficiently appraised epoch in the history of architecture into the present. May contain traces of nostalgia.
