Here Comes the Blind Commissioner. They've Got Him in a Trance - with apologies to Bob Dylan
CHANGING ARCHITECTURE special
Eric Owen Moss is considered to be among the international architecture scenes most important and innovative figures.
Over the past nearly 40 years, he has realized a multitude of award-winning buildings which have both stimulated and left
their mark on the international architectural discourse. Moss, who has been appointed commissar for Austrias contribution to the 2010 Venice Biennale of Architecture, is to
speak at the MAK Contemporary Art Depot in the Arenbergpark Flak Tower in Viennas third district. His lecture will cover
his most recent projects and his current concept of Austria under Construction: Austrian Architecture around the World; International Architecture in Austria. In this, Moss focuses on the strengths of Austrian architects working internationally, and of foreign architects who plan
and build projects in Austria, with such exchange also representing an important factor in the architectural discourse.
Following the lecture, the MAK will present the European première of Eric Owen Moss: Construction Manual 19882008, which was published in 2009 by AADCU Verlag. To conclude this event, the installation Eric Owen Moss If Not Now, When? (2009), a generous donation of the architect, will be given its first presentation in Vienna.
