When fears regarding environmental pollution and potential catastrophe were at a high in the 1970s, Haus-Rucker-Co set out to develop a “new concept of architecture.” Based in Vienna, the group was known for their interactive exhibitions and their development of utopian architectural ideas, which showed how people could affect their own environment. Now, their work between 1967 and 1977 is the theme of “Architectural Utopia Reloaded,” the latest exhibition on display at the Haus am Waldsee in Berlin.
Some of Haus-Rucker-Co’s more well-known designs include their “pneumatic air-structures,” and interactive “Mind-Expander” series, which consisted of various helmets that provided the user with different perspectives. The exhibition at Haus am Waldsee includes archives from the founders, as well as walk-in pneumatic spaces, drawings, documentations and original film material to “convey an atmosphere of sustainable design that is as topical today as it was on the heights of the Space Age.” Learn more at the Haus am Waldsee page.
