Schwanzer: Architect, Visionary, Maestro
(1000 items available)
Schwanzer: Architect, Visionary, Maestro is a graphic novel which tells the story of Austrian entrepreneur, architect and teacher, Karl Schwanzer. Posthumously, Schwanzer rose to cult status among his staff, students and clients, conferred especially for his passionate way of working, sparing no effort or expense, and for his relentless search for the optimum solution. In every sense, his life and work were unconventional. His buildings, like the BMW administration building in Munich, caused quite a furor domestically and abroad; his institute at the Technical University of Vienna influenced offices like Coop Himmelb(l)au, Haus-Rucker-Co, Missing Link and ZÜND-UP.
