This instalment focuses on three Austrian practices which together symbolise an architecture that, at its essence, remains mindful to the surrounding context. Featuring works on different scales offering solutions to various functions and programmes, the projects represent a common ability to bring together local materials, traditional practices, and contemporary forms. Most examples are of smaller dimensions, with many being individual residences, and a number have been produced on tight budgets and with restrictive sites or regulations. Through careful materialisation and expression, each of these offices aptly demonstrates the strengths of Austrian architecture today.
