Publication for Graz Architecture. Rationalists, Aesthetes, Gut Instinct Architects, Democrats, Mediacrats

This exhibition guide is published on occasion of the exhibition Graz Architecture. Rationalists, Aesthetes, Gut Instinct Architects, Democrats, Mediacrats at the Kunsthaus Graz:

 

„The reason for showing the works of Günther Domenig, Konrad Frey, Volker Giencke, Bernhard Hafner, Eilfried Huth, Szyszkowitz + Kowalski and Manfred Wolff-Plottegg lies not only in their architectural significance, but—even if this may initially seem surprising—in their (multi-layered) relation to Peter Cook and Colin Fournier, the creators of the Kunsthaus. I was interested, starting with the Kunsthaus and how it came into being, in investigating the works of those Graz-based architects who like Cook and Fournier were born in the 1930s and 1940s and so belong to the same generation. It is no exaggeration to say that Graz and the TU had become a hub for contemporary building culture in the second half of the 20th century. Important architects such as Yona Friedman, Frei Otto or Cedric Price came to this city, while conversely Graz architects were successful beyond Austria‘s borders for many years.“ Barbara Steiner
