Overview

  • First monograph on an Austrian pioneer of digital architecture
  • Fascinating visual material
  • With a foreword by Joseph Giovanini (New York Times, AD, Architect)

Aims and Scope

Plottegg is one of Austria's most high-profile avant-garde architects. He has been pioneering the use of the computer since the 1980s. However, using the technology purely as an electronic drawing board is not enough for him - programs are intended to generate solutions. The works selected for this publication therefore represent the architect's design concepts and working methods rather than solutions for building projects. The projects are primarily presented in the form of images; descriptions, data and comments have been reduced to the minimum possible. To that extent, this book is also a visual supplement to his essays published up to now. This first monograph on Plottegg's built and planned architecture closes a gap in the documentation of innovative Austrian architects.
