A doyen of Viennese architecture turns 90. Karl Mang celebrates his birthday on October 5 - the Az W congratulates him and then holds a party!
Karl Mang (born 1922) studied at the Technische Hochschule in Vienna and in 1954, together with this wife Eva Mang-Frimmel, opened his office in Vienna. Innumerable designs for shop fitting-outs, exhibitions as well as numerous trade fair buildings bear witness to his intensive examination of the history of furniture-making. His interest in the social aspects of building forms an important part of Karl Mang\'s oeuvre.
