Dez 7th, 2018 | By , , and | Category: Ideal Spaces, Spatial concepts, Topics

This paper discusses the inclusion of nature in the utopian vision of the radical movements of the 60s and 70s. In particular, it presents the Austrian radicals as the first and main supporters towards the aforementioned tendency. The introduction of nature in the built environment is a feature of Austrian radicalism since its first generation which includes authors such as Raimund Abraham, Walter Pichler, Hans Hollein and Gunther Domenig. The latter is taken here presented as the main representative of this current on the architectonic scale. Three of his works are described in the text to represent three different declinations of this trend towards biomimicry.
