15.04. – 10.05.2015
Exhibition „Bus:stop. Krumbach“ opens on Wednesday, April 15th at 16.00 in the Gallery of the Museum of Estonian Architecture
The unusual idea from the association kultur krumbach developed into a project in which seven internationally acclaimed architecture offices designed seven little bus stops for the village of Krumbach in the Bregenzerwald region of western Austria. For the “fee” of a week’s holiday in Bregenzerwald, seven architects designed projects which respect the local landscape and architecture of the region and have since developed into an unusual tourism magnet. This project tells a tale of the strength of communal action and emphasises the significance and influence of a small architectural object. The bus shelters were designed by architects Alexander Brodsky (Russia), Rintala Eggertsson Architects (Norway), Architecten de Vylder Vinck Taillieu (Belgium), Ensamble Studio/Antón García-Abril and Débora Mesa (Spain), Smiljan Radic (Chile), Amateur Architecture Studio/Wang Shu and Lu Wenyu (China) and Sou Fujimoto (Japan) .
The exhibition by Architekturzentrum Wien (Az W) is brought to you by association kultur krumbach in cooperation with vai Vorarlberger Architektur Institut.
The exhibition will be open until May 17, 2015.
The exhibition is supported by Estonian Cultural Capital and the Austrian Embassy in Tallinn
