Contemporary Austrian architecture explored through the example of four practices: ARTEC (Bettina Götz and Richard Manahl), Adolf Krischanitz, PAUHOF (Michael Hofstätter and Wolfgang Pauzenberger) and Riegler-Riewe (Florian Riegler and Roger Riewe). Essays by Peter Allison, Ernst Hubeli, Otto Kapfinger and Christian Kühn assess the significance of the work in the wider European context and discuss specific issues that it raises, such as its contribution to the development of the environment, the role of colour, the use of materials and particularly of light-responsive materials, and the recurrence of simple rectangular forms.
