Description

The Austrian architect's projects and approach in an extensive, elaborately designed, and playfully organized monograph.Besides making buildings for living and working, Adolf Krischanitz also specializes in buildings for art and culture. Most recently, for instance, his Temporary Kunsthalle on the Schlossplatz in Berlin and the 21 Haus in Vienna are excellent examples of what architecture in the service of art can look like. This publication presents his diverse projects, which cover every genre, from furniture design to museum. Otto Kapfinger, architecture theorist and journalist has conceived an open structure for the book, impressively conveying Krischanitz's special approach, his apparently minimalist aesthetics, and the sublime style of his buildings. Organized according to themes and concepts, the essays explore the architect's impact on intersecting points, such as architecture/urban planning, theory/practice, and architecture/contemporary art, but ultimately leave the last word to beautiful architectural expression.
