"Atelier 5 has been operating for more than 45 years and is one of Switzerland's most important architectural offices. Their housing estates and urban projects count amongst the most significant examples of post-war residential structures in the world. A characteristic of their architecture is that it does not succumb to passing trends but continually seeks to create new prototypes. In their designs, they explore the relationship between form and function, ensuring that social needs and the needs of the occupants are given primary consideration."

Transcript by Heimrad Bäcker( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Transcript is a disturbing document. Using the techniques of concrete and visual poetry, Heimrad Backer presents quotations from the Holocaust's planners, perpetrators, and victims. The book offers a startling collection of documents that confront us with details from the bureaucratic world of the Nazis and the intimate worlds they destroyed. Backer's sources range from victims' letters and medical charts to train schedules and the telephone records of Auschwitz. His transcriptions and reworkings of these sources serve as a reminder that everything about the Shoah was spoken about in great detail, from the most banal to the most monstrous. Transcript shows us that the Holocaust was not "unspeakable," but was an eminently describable and described act spoken about by thousands of people concerned with the precision and even the beauty of their language."--Jacket
Heinz Tesar by Heinz Tesar( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in German and Multiple languages and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Er rangiert langst unter den wichtigen und bekannten Vertretern jener osterreichischen Architektengeneration, die massiv nachruckt und den Holleins, Holzbauers, Peichls . den Rang streitig macht. Er gehort aber auch zu jenen, denen die Konzentration auf das eigene Werk wichtiger ist als dessen mediale Verbreitung: Daher steht das umfassende Buch uber Heinz Tesar bis heute aus. Dabei hat sich sein architektonischer Credo weit uber Wien hinaus in die architektonische Landschaft eingeschrieben. In der Bundeshauptstadt selbst sind zwar Wohnbauten und ein Kindergarten von ihm geplant worden, aber der Reprasentationsbau des Schomer-Hauses steht in Klosterneuburg; und gerade jetzt wird dort eine evangelische Kirche von ihm fertiggestellt. Auch in Hallein hat Tesar seine architektonische Handschrift hinterlassen: Mit dem Umbau des Stadttheaters und des Keltenmuseums sind dort zwei der bemerkenswertesten Bauten dieses Architekten entstanden

A flower for the dead : the memorials of Bogdan Bogdanović by Friedrich Achleitner( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and German and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friedrich Achleitner, a poet and architectural critic, was a close friend of Bogdan Bogdanovic in his late years, when he was living in exile in Vienna. Achleitner visited all of Bogdanovic's memorials, first with his friend, then again after the artist's death, and this book presents his impressions of the sites through a striking combination of essays and images that bring home the theme of Bogdanovic's work, a desire to include rather than exclude, to unite rather than separate
