Exhibition: Roland Rainer. (Un)­Disputed. New Findings on the Work (1936–1963). Vienna, 20 October 2018 – 10 December 2018

SammlungsLab #3

Roland Rainer (1910–2004) numbers among the most notable Austrian architects of the 20th century. His buildings are key to the identity of modern democratic Austria.

Rainer’s housing estate concept for the “structured and dispersed city” is still considered an important model of space-saving housing. During the Nazi period, Rainer acquired his knowledge of fundamental urban research at the Deutsche Akademie für Städtebau. The continuity of the concepts in Rainer’s work and his professional career suggest flexibility in adapting to different political systems.

The acquisition of his estate by the Az W Collection in 2015 has provided an opportunity to re-examine his oeuvre and his biography. In cooperation with the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, SammlungsLab #3 presents, and opens to discussion, the initial findings in an exhibition and a symposium.
