|Up until today, the “Graz School” is one of the most well-known phenomena of twentieth-century Austrian architecture. Contrary to previous publications, which concentrated more on the expressive and deconstructivist use of forms of the “Graz School,” this publication focuses on the less well-known utopian designs and structuralist concepts of the nineteen-sixties, developed by the architecture students at Graz University of Technology. Apart from analytical essays, the volume comprises numerous personal articles by the protagonists of that era. With contributions by Peter Blundell Jones, Konrad Frey, Volker Giencke, Bettina Götz, Eugen Gross, Bernhard Hafner, Gabu Heindl, Eilfried Huth, Dörte Kuhlmann, Tomás Valena, Manfred Wolff-Plottegg, and others.
