The Kiesler Foundation Vienna presents, for the first time in Austria, a few innovative projects by Italian architect Maurizio Sacripanti (1916-1996).

The work of the Roman architect occupies an exceptional position in the development of Italian architecture of the post-war period. In some sketches from the 1950s and 1960s, Sacripanti combines his interest for art, film and design with the scientific and technical characteristics of building.

Projects such as the Peugeot skyscraper in Buenos Aires (1961), the Teatro Lirico for the city of Cagliari (1965) and the Italian Pavilion for the World Expo in Osaka (1968) illustrate Sacripantis early occupation with and interest in interdisciplinary strategies of designing space.

The exhibition Maurizio Sacripanti. Architecture and the Language of Images includes loans from the collection of the Accademia Nazionale di San Luca in Rome, i.e. five original projects from the 1960s to the 1980s. Many photographs will be shown along with sketches and architectural plans. With their independent aesthetic features, these photographs enrich the documentation of Sacripantis creative design process.
