Just look into it...

Vorarlberg is regarded as a centre of contemporary building culture in Europe. The exhibition Getting Things Done offers a cross-sectional view of how building culture has evolved from the late 1950s until the present. A selection of 230 projects demonstrate the exceptional quality of Vorarlberg's architecture: the mixing of functions, a radical formal approach, spatial versatility, ecological vision, social integration. The travelling exhibition started in 2014 at the Werkraum Bregenzerwald and has been displayed since then in over twenty locations around the world in a programme instigated by the Austrian Cultural Forum network.

Exhibition in the Making

Wolfgang Fiel takes a critical look at Vorarlberg's architectural landscape, over fifty years of architectural history, and some five hundred construction projects. Devised in conjunction with actors from the world of building culture, the exhibition concept is informed by a wide variety of perspectives and experience, which have underpinned the search for appropriate selection criteria and for a suitable mode of presentation that would capture the openness and complexity of this process and turn it into something that visitors might experience themselves.
The curatorial Approach
Exhibition Design

Take a deeper look…

Our “Featured Stories” shed light on the approach underlying the exhibition concept and the distinctive qualities of the exhibition architecture. These stories provide information about the significance of architecture and handcraft in Vorarlberg and the conditions that shape this regional phenomenon. They present the publications that have been produced in conjunction with the exhibition. And they inspire you to visit Vorarlberg to go in search of the projects showcased in the exhibition.

An Oral History Archive

The centrepiece of the exhibition is a series of interviews with the protagonists of Vorarlberg's building culture, allowing us to take stock of architectural creativity in the region. In fifty-seven interviews, planners, commissioning clients, artisans, and creative artists delineate the conditions informing the development of high-quality architecture. Curator Wolfgang Fiel went to see the actors in their home environment. The website shows the interviews in full and in the abbreviated versions presented in the exhibition.
