The work of Ai Weiwei was recently showcased at the Kunsthaus by Peter Zumthor in Bregenz, Austria. His collaborative work within the architectural arena was the main focus, filling all 3 floors with various projects. More after the break.

The first floor of the exhibition starts  with a very grounded presentation of architectural projects with displays ranging from architectural models, plans, photos, and video documentation of his various collaborative efforts – most notably the Bird’s Nest with renowned architects Herzog and de Meuron. The 2nd floor features the works of the 2011 Ordos 100 projects, followed by the 3rd floor exhibition with abstract and minimal architectural works such as the Moon Chest.
