This book features the work of Innsbruck-based architecture studio LAAC. Since 2012, this leading Austrian firm has been developing and exploring innovative architectural responses to contemporary urban and landscape challenges. This is done in collaboration with a network of other architects, artists, graphic designers, and experts from other disciplines. In addition to public buildings for culture, education, and sports, commercial buildings, and industrial structures, LAAC has a particular focus on landscape and public space designs.
Information & Formation is the first monograph on LAAC and documents ten realized designs and projects in Innsbruck and other parts of the Austrian federal state of Tyrol, Vienna, and Venice in much detail through photographs, plans, visualizations, and texts. Essays by international authors and a complete catalog of LAAC’s work to date round out this volume.
