In 2014 the Library and Works on Paper Collection received approximately 8 000 design drawings and plans by the distinguished
Austrian architect Gustav Peichl. Among them are initial concept sketches for the regional studio of the ORF as well as the
associated plans for submission. Public-sector construction contracts for e.g. rehabilitation centers, schools, and urban
planning stand in stark contrast to numerous unrealized projects. Social housing and representative detached houses complete
this overview of Peichl’s architectural Gesamtkunstwerk or total work of art.

Library and Works on Paper Collection
Head: Kathrin Pokorny-Nagel
The MAK Library and Works on Paper Collection is one of the largest and oldest museum libraries with a focus on applied art.
Alongside classic library functions, the collection is also devoted to artistic aspects of the pictorial in all possible variants
as well as to the initiation of a reappraisal of art production manifested in paper form.
