wonderland tour

Posted on: 15th February 2015

In September 2002 eleven architecture teams, all of whom have Carinthian roots, started the Wonderland project with an exhibition at the Fundernovum in St. Veit an der Glan. The idea, initiated by Spado architects, was to create a collective identity under the name of Wonderland. The winning team of an internal competition, SHARE, developed a flexible, modular exhibition system, based on square panels 40 x 40 cm, where each team could present their projects with images, texts, models. It was the beginning of a self-organized network, based on personal contacts and common passions.

Between 2002 and 2003 the exhibition travelled to three Austrian locations: St.Veit/Glan, Vienna and Graz. In fall 2003 Wonderland became an association.

The success of the exhibition in Austria prompted the continuation of the project in the form of a tour through eight European countries (Slovakia, Czech Republic, Germany, Netherlands, France, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia). In each country, 11 local teams were invited to join the exhibition and perform on the Wonderland landscape. The number of pixels of each team decreased with each exhibition, while the number of teams grew. The resulting exhibition shows an increasing density of information about the young European architecture landscape.

The European Wonderland Tour has started in Bratislava in June 2004. The stops included Prague, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Venice, Zagreb, Ljubljana and with a final exhibition and closing event taking place in Vienna in June and in St. Veit/Glan in September 2006.
