Cities are places where global environmental challenges are focused, but at the same time they serve as centers for innovation. Fortunately, the care for the condition of the natural environment is becoming more and more often recognized as an important aspect of urban development, that is capable of contributing to both economic development and the growing satisfaction of residents. Good condition of the environment is one of the pillars of sustainable development, which was treated inadequately in cities for many years.
We are delighted to invite you to the launch of the monograph of Elsa Prochazka, one of the most influential contemporary creators of Vienna. The focus of the architect, who has been active for more than 40 years, lies in school buildings, residential quarters and urban planning projects, praised by architecture journalist Otto Kapfinger for their "unpathetic elegance and ingenious usefulness". As an exhibition designer, Prochazka has made appearance by designing the musicians' apartments of the Wien Museum.
