A multifaceted review of Vienna-based Pichler & Traupmann Architects’ achievements of three decades.For their thirtieth anniversary, Vienna-based Pichler & Traupmann Architekten review their body of work to date. At the core of the firm’s ambitious design philosophy is the potential of a given site in the field of tension between polarities. The focus of their work is on commercial, residential, and educational structures. Their key designs include the headquarters of the Austrian motorists’ association ÖAMTC in Vienna (2013 – 16), the extension of the Kulturzentrum Eisenstadt (2006 – 12), the Future Art Lab of Vienna’s University of Music and Performing Arts (2014 – 20), the RAIQA (Raiffeisen-Quartier) in Innsbruck (ongoing since 2019), and the Pinkafeld Campus of Burgenland University of Applied Sciences (ongoing since 2019).This lavishly illustrated book documents Pichler & Traupmann Architects’ most important designs, built and unrealized, arranged by topic. Internationally renowned architectural publicists and scientists contribute essays that explore the firm’s vision and approach. A complete index of their more than two hundred and fifty projects and studies rounds out the book.
