The Architekturzentrum Wien will, for the frist time, present the overall project of the Museum Quarter Vienna, which is now under construction, to the public. The competition, the planning phase, the political discussions, accompanied and guided by the media, permit the visitor of this exhibition to immerse into a piece of cultural history.

The exhibition shall focus not only on the future architecture of the Museumsquartier but also on the relationship between politics, society, and the media. The exhibition therefore compares large cultural buildings on an international level and highlights the correlation between problems and responsibilities which in the end lead to the realization of the project.
