A+U 525: Vienna Transition Of Theory And Expression

00:00 - 27 June, 2014
A+U 525: Vienna Transition Of Theory And Expression

From the publisher. Between the late 19th century and early 20th century, Vienna was the epicenter of new architectural movements. Architects like Gottfried Semper, Otto Wagner, and Adolf Loos presented pioneering theories and expressions which influenced the world. Furthermore, cityscape of Vienna had been the subject of architects’ creation. They form the layers in Vienna’s urban structure, and architects who design in this city must interpret this structure and upon which further form new layers.

June 2014 issue of a+u  introduces the theories and their expressions of architecture in Vienna, and their transition from the pre-modern to the modern to the present, through 60+ newly-photographed works, two essays on “transformation of architectural expression through building facades” and “recent developments for urban expansion zones”, and interviews with contemporary architects.

International design firm 3XN has recently won a competition to design a residential building in downtown Vienna, Austria.  Being so close to the historic center of the city, the project required a unique but unobtrusive appearance. With this in mind, a subtle, curving façade composed of warm colors was developed for the exterior.

An interesting article in The Atlantic Cities reveals the ideas behind "gender mainstreaming" in Vienna, a policy that began in the early 1990s and has had a huge effect on the past two decades of city planning there. Initially intended specifically to make the city more livable for women, the principles have proven so successful that they now form a part of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme's best practices. You can read the full article here.

Currently on exhibit until October 6th at MAK Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art in Vienna, the Eastern Promises, Contemporary Architecture and Spatial Practices in East Asia focuses on the promise of a pioneering architecture, which is especially associated with East Asian countries. Projects from China, Japan, Taiwan and South Korea reflect local traditions and conditions as well as a critical awareness of global media technologies leading to an architectural approach that is less interested in iconic objects and spectacular forms than in a structural realignment of society in its spatial dimensions. A program of selected short films rounds off the exhibition with moments of experimental city viewing and everyday appropriation of (public) space. More information after the break.
