Haus-Rucker-Co: 1967 bis 1983 is a German-speaking monograph about the influential avant-garde group of architects and artists. The group was founded in 1967 in Vienna, Austria, and its members were Laurids Ortner, Günther Zamp Kelp, Klaus Pinter and Manfred Ortner. Haus-Rucker-Co is especially famous for their happenings and installations and the use of pneumatic structures or prosthetic devices to challenge the established conventions of how to understand, use and perceive architectural space.
The book opens with a comprehensive analysis of the artistic approach of the group written by Stanislaus von Moos. Günter Zamp Kelp’s Journal maps the founding history and developments in their working methods. Haus-Rucker-Co’s works from 1967 until 1983 are showcased and analysed by the group themselves. The book ends with biographic information of the group and its members, and a list of their projects. The editor is Heinrich Klotz.
The texts are in German, and the illustrations include black-and-white photographs, architectural drawings and other black-and-white images of their works.
