Insights from Architekturzentrum, Vienna 

On Wednesday 2 February 2022, the new permanent exhibition of the Architekturzentrum Wien, entitled ‘Hot Questions – Cold Storage’, opened its doors. Taking as its starting point the tension between the apparent inertia of archival material, resting in a suburban Vienna depot, and the difficult matters that – when raised – can make this archive speak, the exhibition presents a panorama of Vienna’s architectural production, from the turn of the last century to this day. Here is a scene from the realm of ‘Cold storage’, and the process of photographing the models now on display at the Museumsquartier.
