The Kaufmann architecture office has been established for over 30 years as a major feature in the Upper Austrian architectural landscape. The work ranges from residential, office and commercial buildings through sports facilities and industrial complexes to urban development planning. This book presents 23 of their principal buildings and projects. Many buildings have been implemented in Upper Austria, and more recently projects all over Europe.
The guiding principle in all Wolfgang Kaufmann's projects is architecture as a total service – a rare virtue today. For Kaufmann, comprehensive support for the client in an increasingly complicated world is not merely an empty slogan, but the core of his architectural philosophy.
Wolfgang Kaufmann represents a position which attempts – within the bounds of given circumstances, to fulfil our desired standards of cultural building. This book, which includes a selection of his most important buildings, gives an insight into the profession Wolfgang Kaufmann sees as his top priority: that of an interesting architect who, in shaping the space we live in, leaves behind not only high-quality buildings but also satisfied clients who frequently become his friends.
