City in Space

Mariahilfer Straße 1b/Top 1, 01060 Wien Map
Tue–Fri 10 am–5 pm

The focus of the presentation is the “Manifesto of Tensionism. Organic Building – the City in Space – Functional Architecture”, which pursues the idea of a city of the future that floats freely in space. First shown by Frederick Kiesler at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris in 1925, this was regarded at the time as one of the most radical architectural concepts to have ever been presented to the public.

Alongside the manifesto, the exhibition will also present photographs, a model and audio elements. An accompanying program with discussions of the exhibition is also in preparation, as is a publication with photographs, the manifesto and further bibliographic references.
