David Adjaye: Making Public Buildings

In the first major museum exhibition of British architect David Adjaye’s work, emphasis is placed on the emotion and functionality behind his public buildings, both realized and in development. On display are models, sketches, photographs from his travels, and films of his projects in the realms of learning, community, contemporary art, and performing arts. Projects include the 2005 Venice Biennale pavilion, the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver.

The Austrian Winery Boom

In addition to a nuanced survey of the cultural and economic situation in Austria since the 1980s, the exhibition offers a study, in 43 projects, of the development from the manor winery to the high-tech wine factory. Individual buildings and architectonic interventions are presented with a wide variety of materials such as blueprints, photographs, models, and sketches, but also individual vintners’ and wineries’ wine bottles.
