Introducing Vorarlberg

Rural though it may seem, Vorarlberg is among the most progressive places on the planet when it comes to architecture. It all started back in the mid-1980s when a group of forward-thinking architects began calling themselves Baukünstler (building artists). Today, almost everywhere you look – private homes, hotels, office blocks, supermarkets – you’ll find cutting-edge buildings of glass, wood and steel. Some, like Inatura in Dornbirn and the Kunsthaus in Bregenz, make urban design statements; others, like the alpine Silvrettahaus, integrate seamlessly into the natural environment.
