The wide-ranging program on offer at the Architekturzentrum Wien bridges the gap between specialists and those who are simply experts of daily life. It encompasses international exhibitions on special themes, a permanent overview exhibition of Austrian architecture, and a total of over 500 events each year, from symposia, workshops, and lectures to guided tours, excursions, film series, and hands-on formats.
As the Austrian museum of architecture, the Az W has established itself on the international scene as an outstanding center of education and research. It offers an unparalleled collection of Austrian architecture of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and a comprehensive service for researchers and all those interested in architecture. This includes a public specialist reference library, the “Architektur Austria Gegenwart” online database of buildings, and an online encyclopedia of architecture.
The Az W sees itself as a forward-looking institution where knowledge is not only collected but also communicated. At its core is a focus on the social dimension of architecture, which prompts questions about distributive justice in the built environment, about living together in an increasingly diverse society, and about managing resources. By looking behind the scenes and including the perspectives of its users, the ways in which architecture shapes our lives become clear to all.
