HAUS-RUCKER-CO

ARCHITECTURAL UTOPIA RELOADED

November 22nd, 2014 – February 22nd, 2015

The late 1960s witnessed an extraordinary sense of awakening and optimism. In the wake of the first space programmes an unshakeable faith took root in progress towards an ever-improving future. Design and architecture became exuberant, colourful, sexy, light-hearted and fluent. Haus-Rucker-Co, as a collective of architects and artists, developed a new concept of architecture for radically altered life-forms. Their interactive “Mind-Expander” and pneumatic architectures caused quite a stir on the international scene.

“Architectural Utopia Reloaded” traces the beginnings of HRC from Vienna to New York between 1967 and 1977 as well as their lasting influence on the contemporary art of today. More
