About this title


The aim of the study is to analyze and describe in detail one of the most important trends in architecture in the 19th and 20th centuries: the evolution, leading from the closed, hermetic spaces of the early cultures and the Middle Ages to the open space and transparency of the 19, and 20th/21st centuries.

About the Author:

Gunther Feuerstein, who was a professor at the Hochschule fur Gestaltung in Linz and also a lecturer at the Akademie der bildenden Kunste and at the Technische Universitat in Vienna, must be considered the catalyst in the Viennese post-war architectural scene, as almost all architectural avant-garde groups of the town have come from his circle. As an author, Feuerstein addresses areas where art history and sociology intersect with architecture. Feuerstein is one of the earliest critics of functionalism and pleads for an "expanded architecture".
