Book Launch: “Habsburgs going global”

October 17, 2022

The Institute for Habsburg and Balkan Studies and the Austrian Academy of Sciences Press invite you to the presentation of the new book by Michael Falser, which deals with the architectural conception and implementation of the Austro-Hungarian Concession in Tientsin (1901-1917).

Michael Falser researches and teaches theory and history of architecture and art at the Technical University of Munich and focuses primarily on global and colonial contexts.

In his presentation of “Habsburgs going global”, Michael Falser will focus on the urban architectural conception and the implementation of the trading post. In addition, the author will present the strategies of today’s Tianjin city government, which is attempting to market the architectural relics of the former imperialist era as Chinese cultural heritage.
