The resulting design, with its kinetic devices and biomorphic furniture, is, to this day, among the most exceptional spaces created for the display of art. It retains a deep influence on architects, designers, artists, and theoreticians alike. This book presents a rich selection of drawings, gouaches, and various other materials from the archive of the Friedrich Kiesler Center in Vienna, allowing the reader to reconstruct the origins of Kieslers design, and an almost flawless outline of the Art of This Century project.

Texts and research materials provide new information on the gallerys spatial structure as well as the features of its visual design.
