"Best of Austria 2010_11. Architecture" is already the third publication in a series that – very successfully – brings Austrian architecture to a wide audience. The Austrian building culture is defined here as including those structures that are built in Austria and those completed by Austrian architects, both domestically and abroad. In doing so, we bring all of the projects from 2010 and 2011 that were awarded with national and international prizes out `in front of the curtain´. This forms a panorama of the Austrian architectural landscape and produces surprising – both charming as well as strange – effects, like when a massive conference center in China is juxtaposed with a small car port in Tirol.
