I oA SQUARE
in course of the Seminar “Other Matter” by Valerie Messini and Bence Pap we are inviting everybody for an open lecture on the Austrian Architect Günther Domenig, presented by Prof. Matthias Boeckl.
Günther Domenig (6 July 1934 – 15 June 2012) was an Austrian architect. Domenig was born in Klagenfurt, and studied architecture at the Graz University of Technology. After working as an architectural assistant, he set up in practice with Eilfried Huth, producing buildings in a brutalist vein. Domenig’s first internationally acclaimed completed work was the Z‑Bank in Vienna, which signalled a much more expressionistic, counter-modernist aesthetic. He is also known for his own concrete home, the Steinhaus at Lake Ossiach, on which he worked for more than 30 years. In addition to his practice, Domenig became a professor at the Graz University of Technology in 1980. He died at the age of 77 in Graz.
