Karl Schwanzer - Anthology: Photos and Documents from 28 Years of Architecture and Contemporary History (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Karl Schwanzer was on fire for architecture. It was his key passion. He reformed Austrian architecture after 1945 and, in the post-war period, significantly shaped the image of a new, free Austria at home and abroad. As an importer and exporter of ideas, he worked on over 600 projects and designs over 28 years of his life.

This book is an illustrated chronology of his oeuvre, bringing to life developments and modulations. At the same time, it is also an architectural and contemporary history as well as a homage to architectural photography; Schwanzer only worked with excellent photographers such as Lucca Chmel, Franz Hubmann, Sigrid Neubert, and with Maria Woelfl, who has yet to be discovered. The photographs of temporary buildings that are no longer in existence are particularly valuable.
