Architecture for the 20th Century
The exhibition at the Graz Museum presents a selection of unrealised architecture of the 20th century in its socio-political context. Plans such as the Scheiner high-rise department store at Jakominiplatz (1929/30), the Garden City Marienwiese (1947), the Trigon Museum in the Pfauengarten (1988-93) or the Kunsthaus in the Schloßberg (1997) are exemplary in Graz for the perpetual debate about the compatibility of modern building culture with the preservation of the historic old town.
SYD MEAD – FUTURE CITIES
Designer of the world of Blade Runner
The Graz Museum presents the first solo exhibition in Austria with works by Syd Mead, the visionary of utopian film worlds and futuristic design who passed away in late 2019. Syd Mead, who created groundbreaking designs for companies such as Ford, Chrysler, Philips Electronics and Sony, worked for Hollywood since the 1970s. He created both breathtaking and futuristic worlds for legendary science fiction movies (Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Tron, Blade Runner, Aliens II, Mission to Mars, Elysium) that continue to have a lasting influence on film, industrial and game designers as well as architects and urban planners to this day.
