Overview

Messe Wien / Vienna Fair by Markus Kristan, Princeton Architectural Press

For almost a century Vienna has hosted fairs of international fame, an essential element in its position as an international center of commerce. With the recent completion of new fair buildings, the Prater has been "relaunched." Essays on the history of fairs in Vienna, a contribution by Gustav Peichl on new fair architecture, and historical insights by Markus Kristan give comprehensive coverage of an institution that once gave Vienna its image and that has now been restored to life.
