Abstract

Rudolf Perco, one of the most promising pupils in Otto Wagner’s late period as teacher received numerous honourable mentionings and awards while still a student (1906 – 10) and so may well have expected a brilliant career. However, after World War I, he could realize only very few projects and his name became forgotten. It was only in the scope of the large scale public housing plan of Red Vienna in the 1920es, that he was given opportunities to materialize his Wagner based ideas, and to build several communal housings, of which the Engels Platz – Hof is the largest and most important. Besides, he submitted entries to a vast number of competitions, for which he designed projects, whose very personal features bring him close to Josef Plečnik.

Abstract

Large parts of our culture are characterised by a blurring of corporeal and virtual realities.


Computer industry has opened up all sorts of hybrid spaces and has itself, in turn, become a space for uncountable fantasies and expectations. Which are the principles of cultural order depicted by this desire commonly termed cyberspace?


In offering novel narratives of modern architecture the author explains how the digital age couples notions of knowledge, life and future with long-known dimensions of architectonic space.


Amongst the issues being discussed the reader will find Boullee's visionary designs, classical modern architecture, museums, shopping malls, science fiction, advertising, CAD, biotechnology and the construction of a utopian cyberspace at the turn of the millennium.
