Exhibition object "At the end: Architecture", Architecture Center Vienna

The end of the end

Theoreticians have announced the "end of architecture" on a regular basis since the end of the 1950s. And in doing so mostly marked the beginning of a new movement. Using works of Haus-Rucker-Co, Coop Himmelb(l)au, Miroslav Šik, Zaha Hadid, Kisho Kurokawa, Hans Hollein, Herzog & de Meuron, Steven Holl, Johan Otto von Spreckelsen, Paul Andreu and others, the exhibition "At the end: Architecture" shows how many different paths architecture has taken in the past decades.

The focus is not only on movements such as Criticism of Functionalism and Gentle Urban Renewal, New Urbanism and Revision of Modernism, Signature Architecture, the Bottom-Up movement and Global Business, but also on the current field of tension between global large offices and star architects on the one hand and socially committed, historically aware and regionally anchored construction on the other. Beyond that, the show compares foreseeable developments in present-day architecture against the gloomy backdrop of a Los Angeles of the future as prophesied for the year 2019 in the cult film "Blade Runner".
