The seventh edition of Best of Austria, produced by Vienna-based Architekturzentrum Wien, once again brings together some 170 projects that have won national and international architecture awards in 2018 and 2019, from public buildings and spaces to offices, educational facilities, and single-family homes. Each entry includes full-color images and a floor plan, section, or elevation, as well as a brief description of the project.
Rounding out the volume is a critical essay on contemporary Austrian architecture. All of the country’s major architectural prizes are accounted for in this large and lavishly illustrated volume, making it a valuable up-to-date survey of contemporary architecture in Austria.
