More About This Title Constructive Provocation


Within the context of an exhibition cycle entitled "Experimental Architectures in Europa" the Institut francais d'architecture (IFA), in conjunction with the Vorarlberger Architekturinsitut (vai), presents the contemporary architecture of Vorarlberg as well as the movement of the "Baukünstler", which provided its basis. The architecture scene in Vorarlberg today reveals a landscape composed of dense areas of experiment with certain outstanding projects, it offers urban proposals but also an "everyday architecture" of a disarming quality that provides evidence of architects' involvement in the problems and needs of the society in which they live.


The IFA is an organization established in 1981 to promote the French contemporary architecture. This organization is a place of reflection, exhibition and memory architecture of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. It is primarily a producer of programs devoted to the dissemination of the living architectural creation in France and abroad to a wide range of audiences.
