Summary Rudiger Lainer first attracted attention in the lively Viennese architectural scene through several socially and architecturally ambitious residential buildings. Since then he has secured his position with the School at Absbergasse, the Seilergasse roof construction and comprehensive plans for the former Aspern airfield. Rudiger Lainer succeeds in combining systemic economy and a lively individuality in an architecturally productive relationship. The social and cultural requirements of future inhabitants form the very basis for the identity of the building. His concepts and forms are playful and easy, avoiding any fashionable severity which through repetition becomes banal. Alongside several celebrated buildings, this book contains numerouis projects, competition entries and texts written by Lainer himself, providing insight into his potential of ideas, his creativity and personality.
