Presenting Austria’s best architecture is a tall order and selecting it a great challenge. A challenge whose weight, in the case of this book, rests upon many shoulders. Each project presented here has received at least one or, in some cases, several significant architectural awards in 2006 and 2007. These winners were chosen by qualified juries who judged the submitted projects according to the criteria of each competition. The result is a panorama of Austria’s architectural landscape, showing its density, high standard, widespread regional distribution, and enormous variety.
