What is it with Vorarlberg and architecture? A Bundesland without any architecture school produces the most visible and sexy buildings, and so many of these practitioners choose to live in a mostly rural State. Let's explore why, on a tour of 200 years of fine, warm and complex built environment. This place is playful, modern and strange.

Eugene will stroll around town with Marina Hämmerle, one of the most visible architects in West Austria. Der Standard's building correspondent, Maik Novotny, was in Lustenau to report about our event, and knows Marina. Let's explore together. Are you surprised by any of our choices of the 10 most important buildings across the last two Centuries of Lustenau houses? Here is Der Standard's report on Luschnouar Spaziergaeng, recommending Marina's tour: https://www.derstandard.at/sto...

And here is a link to the bigger project, Luschnouar Spaziergaeng, where we try to show residents the real advantages in making more journeys on foot, and fewer by car - including mental and physical health benefits, supporting the local economy, building a sense of social belonging and identity in the Marktgemeinde, plus becoming more creative, meeting more friends, and of course the ecological bonus. https://www.lustenau.at/de/leb...

We will be making schools workshops about why the kids should walk to school, plus a training session for future local walk leaders.
