O & O Buildings for European Culture Relying on one’s own traditions is not a backward move, but the opportunity to gain a European identity that can now be further developed in a new continuity after the erroneous attempts to find form in recent decades. The work of O & O shows this clearly. According to the ‘Dictionary of Architecture’, Ortner & Ortner now presents a compendium of their buildings and designs for ‘European Culture’. From the categories Theater, Museum, Library, projects are presented that begin with experimental experiments from the Haus-Rucker-Co period and end with cultural buildings that are among the most important internationally. ‘European culture’ is the exemplary situation in which old and new meet in an unprecedented variety of facets and are united in a new mixture. A comprehensive text section with contributions by Manuela Hötzl, Ernst Hubeli, Bart Lootsma, Sophie Lovell and Laurids Ortner uses selected projects to capture this European mixture in its ingredients. O & O Buildings for European Culture Embracing one’s own tradition is not a backward turn. Instead, it represents the chance to obtain a European identity, which after the Erratic Attempts at Finding a Form. The works of Ortner & Ortner exhibit this clearly. Following their Primer of Architecture, Ortner & Ortner now provide a compendium of their buildings and designs for “European culture.” Presented are projects in three areas: theaters, museums, and libraries. The projects begin with the experimental ventures from the house-Rucker-Co era and end with cultural buildings that are among the most significant internationally. “European culture” is an exemplary situation in which the old and new concur in an unparalleled wealth of features and are then reunited in a new blend. Manuela Hötzl, Ernst Hubeli, Bart Lootsma, Sophie Lovell, and Laurids Ortner on selected projects, grasping the ingredients of this European blend.
