“I felt a tender love towards all classical architecture, but a the same time dreamt of loving contemporary architecture as well”. Until October 2011 the Architekturzentrum Wien displays works and a room-sized installation of the Russian artist and architect Alexander Brodsky.
At the beginning of his career, Alexander Brodsky is part of the “paper-architecture“ movement even though at that point, at the beginning of the eighties, there is no movement in the true sense yet. The notion “paper-architecture” rather expresses a typical limitation to architectural creativity in the Soviet Union of the time: Young architects who would refuse to fit in with the established architecture system would have no means to carry out their projects, and therefore design only for presentation or indeed just for the paper.
