Brutalism Kulturzentrum Mattersburg

In the 1960s and 1970s a series of cultural centers were planned for the Burgenland, the economically weak, easternmost Austrian state on the border to Hungary. The Mattersburg Cultural Center was the first of these projects and thus essentially a model for what followed. The exposed concrete building is important not just in terms of architecture but also cultural policy. (Special thanks to Johann Gallis)
