Publisher's description: The federal state of Vorarlberg holds a distinguished position in wooden construction with an active and innovative scene, where tradespeople, planers and industrial enterprises build upon their possibilities and develop their field together. Hermann Kaufmann, as one of the key protagonists has been working with his team to push the material to its limits for decades. In regards to its size and industrial manufacturing, the Illwerke Zentrum Montafon has successfully made a quantum leap in wooden construction. The publication describes the emergence of the approximately 10,000m2 administration centre: from the influence of the water and the topography, from the development of the cubature defined by the static structure of the building system and the uniform conditions for all working spaces, to the change of the office culture due to the architecture, and finally, the integration of art in the construction.
