Hermann Czech is one of Austria’s most renowned architects. His built work ranges from urban planning, private houses, flat conversions, cafés and restaurants to exhibition designs and furniture.
The main direction can only be approximate: only in the concrete project do constructive and spatial considerations, an intensive examination of the existing and all other possible ramifications of thought lead to surprising spatial solutions.
Hermann Czech. Approximate main direction is dedicated to this “thinking about design” in a varied selection of projects. Methods (“how something is created”) and spatial effects (“how something looks”) are presented on the basis of projects and realizations (some of which have never been shown before) from the 1960s to the present day. The associative juxtaposition of the work examples reveals richness in the seemingly inconspicuous, and links the theme of participation with a conceptually well-founded position of Mannerism.
