    Aims and Scope

    An elephant skin house, a hill house, and a village on the roof. An open school landscape, a baroque multi-storey car park, and a silvery gleaming weather machine. Vienna-based PPAG architects studio, established in 1995 by Anna Popelka and Georg Poduschka, reconceptualise architecture time and again with acumen, lust and inventive spirit. Their multifunctional street furniture “Enzi” in Vienna’s MuseumsQuartier has become an indispensable hallmark of the city. In all their projects, PPAG search for the more in space, finding their way from the abstraction of the idea to the fresh reality of the palpable result, distilling gemütlichkeit from geometry and homeliness from science.
    With illustrations and plans of over 25 selected projects and an encyclopedia containing texts and background information, this book offers lucid insights into this complete and complex world of conceptualised, built and lived architecture. Speaking Architecture represents the comprehensive phenomenology of a team of architects that has never ceased to search for new potentials of life in space: More is More.
