PARLIAMENT AUSTRIA A building like a sculpture. A building that is our home. A building as democracy shaped in architecture. A memorial for peace. The original mother of the measurement of life in our country. Renovation means maintaining value. But renovation also means modernisation. It means redefinition. It means a caesura. It means pausing at a turning point in time. Like a general pause in the course of a piece of music. The ultimate symbol of our country becomes even more visible. Becomes a building like no other. Radically new. Representatively open to everyone. The ultimate agora for all Austrians. A meeting place. Identity-forming. This is where living together in community is decided. The number of rooms in the Parliament is currently 922. What a house! The book will visit each of these rooms to examine them for their visual and spiritual energy. This book wants to take the viewer by the hand, lead them through the house and make them feel at home, familiar. This book will open the house. To “make the visible visible” through light, perspective, contrast and mathematical-geometric language of form. And to make discoveries where seemingly everything is already known. This book wants to make its visual contribution to helping all Austrians to make their parliament their parliament.
