This exhibition was developed for the specific purpose of presenting “architecture from Vorarlberg” to a decidedly international audience in the form of a touring show travelling to the venues of the thirty-two Austrian Cultural Forums located around the world.
With a total of more than 230 projects and around 700 photographic illustrations, the exhibition does offer a comprehensive overview of a movement with its origins in the late 1950s and early 1960s that has been labelled the Vorarlberger Bauschule (Vorarlberg School of Building).

The exhibition display, which can be seen as a series of folders hanging in space, has been designed according to a modular concept, catering to the fact that the exhibition requires quick and easy assembly and disassembly, should weigh little, and be compact enough to be readily transportable, while also needing to be adaptable to the widely varying physical realities of the different spaces it will be put into.
The transport crates serve bottom-up as finely worked plinths for the presentation of the crafts objects in the exhibition. The entire exhibition display consists of nine plinths, the modular wooden frame with two monitors, and the digital guest book tablet.
