The Austrian Cultural Forum New York brings contemporary Austrian culture to NYC & beyond. Free events,exhibits,library & tours of the iconic building
Our current exhibition "Resident Alien" chronicles iconic works of expat Austrian masters in the US, from the classic modernist forms of Adolf Loos to current high-tech works of Peter Trummer. _ The curators divided our multi-level gallery into five distinct spaces: Primitive Domains, Aggregate Families, Urban Terrestrials, Cloud Natures, and Media Atmospheres. This installation view shows the space devoted to Urban Terrestrials. It showcases works by Raimund Abraham, Herwig Baumgartner, COOP HIMMELB(L)AU, Victor Gruen, Hans Hollein, Christoph Kapeller, Hubert Klumpner, LIQUIFER Systems Group, Mark Mack, Carl Pruscha, and Peter Trummer. _ #acfny #aus#austriahitects #residentalien #austrianculturalforumnewyork #newyorkcity #exhibition #architecture #art #design #austria #culture 📷 by David Plakke

Julia Koerner, “Architecture’s Queen of 3D Fabrication” (@Archinect, 2019), between her works “Venus Dress” (2016) and “Cellular Complexity Evolve” (2014) in our current exhibition RESIDENT ALIEN. Based in Salzburg and LA, the award-winning Austrian designer works at the convergence of architecture, product and fashion design. Thanks for visiting us today! _ Her 3D-printed “Venus dress” was inspired by the deep-sea sponge also known as 'Venus flower basket'. Just as the sponge’s woven net-like structure grows based on environmental influences and adapts to its surroundings, the dress is a woven and tessellated matrix generated from a point-cloud, mapped based on characteristics and dimensions of the wearer. Printed using biodegradable polylactic acid (PLA) filament, it adapts to temperature and touch and its details also change color according to its environment. _ As one of the industry's leading 3D fabrication designers, Koerner also developed 3D-printed fashion pieces with Haute Couture Houses for Paris Fashion week and collaborated on 3D-printed costumes for the Hollywood film “Black Panther,” which won the 2019 Oscar for Best Costume Design. _ #koernerjulia #acfny #new#newyork #newyork #architecture #austrianarchitects #austrianarchitectsinamerica #exhibition #residentalien #digitalarchitecture #innovation #3Dfabrication #des#designers #design #futureoffashion #juliakoerner

Here are some impressions from last week’s fall exhibition opening! “Resident Alien” celebrates Austrian architects and highlights the impact their work had in the U.S. _ We were extremely honored to welcome Austrian Foreign and Cultural Minister Alexander Schallenberg to open the show and to have so many architects and designers present for a thought-provoking panel talk preceding the reception. Thank you all for coming! More pictures can be found on Facebook -> link in profile! _ This exhibition was generously supported by Zumtobel Group, List GC and Arktura. It’s open 7 days a week, through February 17, 2020. _ #acfny #architecture #RaimundAbraham #HerbertBayer #EllaBriggs #ElizabethClose #MatiasdelCampo #SandraManninger #COOPHIMMELB(L)AU #JosefFrank #PaulFrankl #VictorGruen #HausRuckerCo #HansHollein #ChristophKapeller #FrederickKiesler #JuliaKoerner #DuksKoschitz #ChristophaKumpusch #AndreaLenardin #LIQUIFERSystemsGroup #AdolfLoos #MarkMack #RichardNeutra #CarlPruscha #RudolphSchindler #FriedrichStFlorian #PeterTrummer #JosephUrban #LianeZimbler 📷 by David Plakke
