Aims and Scope

After the success of Unbuildable Tatlin?!,a book is now available on Friedrich Kiesler’s visionary “Endless House”, which was only ever realized in the form of a model. It presents the current state of research and discusses the possibility of realizing the project using today's means, and it also brings together various contributions by artists and architects who reflect on Kiesler’s most important work. Texts were contributed by Sanford Kwinter, Klaus Bollinger, Brian Hatton, Laura McGuire, Florian Medicus, Jill Meissner, and Gerd Zillner, with the foreword by Hani Rashid. Visual art contributions were made by Andrea Zittel, Olafur Eliasson, Tomas Saraceno, Ian Kiaer, Jürgen Mayer H., Hans Hollein, Heimo Zobernig, and others.
