This new edition of Best of Austria brings together 170 projects, from public buildings and spaces to offices, educational facilities, and single-family homes. Each entry includes full-colour 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 well-illustrated volume, making it a valuable up-to-date survey of contemporary architecture in Austria.

Architekturzentrum Wien is Austria’s national architecture museum and has gained international recognition for exhibitions showcasing 20th and 21st-century architecture and urban design.
