ABSTRACT
The article describes the architectural design for the Austrian Pavilion, designed by Josef Hoffmann in 1934. The pavillion provides a severe, if beautiful, shell for the contents. But better is the reconstruction of Friedrich Kiesler's 1925 installation Raumstadt. Austria's contemporary architecture is extremely sophisticated and extraordinarily diverse, easily supporting a number of divergent but deeply held convictions, from the organic to stripped Alpine Modernism.
