Getting Things Done
Evolution of the Built Environment in Vorarlberg
at the Senedd, Cardiff Bay
5th April – 6th May
Over the last half a century, the Austrian State of Vorarlberg has developed an international reputation for its radical yet sensitive and considered approach to architecture, design and building. A combination of innovative architects and clients, liberal building and planning regulations, an aspiring regional government and open-minded public has paved the way for a built environment and culture with design quality at its heart. Ecological sensitivity, the value placed on traditional and innovative crafts and skills, investment in young designers, and good understanding of local materials and landscape all contribute to the Vorarlberg phenomenon. Getting Things Done is a touring exhibition showcasing the architecture of Vorarlberg.
The Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff University and the Design Commission for Wales are pleased to be collaborating with the Austrian Cultural Forum London and the National Assembly for Wales to bring this exhibition to the Senedd in Spring 2016 to promote conversations about the culture of place-making, crafts and design in Wales.
