Architekturzentrum Wien. Die ersten zehn Jahre / Architekturzentrum Wien. The first ten years

On the occasion of its 10th anniversary of its founding the Architekturzentrum Wien has taken a look back over its 10 years of existence. The resulting 276 page book "The Architekturzentrum Wien. The first 10 years" has grown into a complete survey of all that has been achieved in the first decade, with documentation in the form of text and images covering 67 exhibitions, 60 publications, 10 congresses, 126 'sonntags' excursions, numerous symposia and innumerable events. The agenda and its aims are presented along with the comprehensive range of services and educational events.



In his text “The Jubilee of a Programme” Dietmar Steiner tells the story of what has become an internationally significant institution, casting an eye on the history of the architecture museum in the presentation and mediation of architecture over the past decade and so showing the Az W to be in good company with other major architecture institutions world-wide. This position is what enables us to take a glance into the future of the content addressed by the Architekturzentrum Wien and its goals.
