The exhibition architecture designed by studio itzo adopts a resource-saving approach on a number of levels. Most of the elements are from previous Kunsthaus exhibitions. Between 2016 and 2020 several practical tests were carried out, resulting in a modular, recyclable, open system. Its components are now brought together for the first time as part of SHOWING STYRIA. In addition, materials sourced from the recycling-based dismantling of buildings or infrastructures (BauKarussell and materialnomaden) or ecologically sustainable materials are used – such as cross-laminated timber. studio itzo has developed a catalogue of diverse modular structures combining references to historical displays with aspects of sustainability.

lignum – Institute of Timber Engineering and Wood Technology/Graz University of Technology, holz.bau forschungs gmbh
Across the world, more and more buildings are being constructed in wood. In the cities too, and even high-rise structures. The fact that tall wooden buildings such as the 24-storey Hoho in Vienna are possible is largely due to research at Graz University of Technology, where the groundwork for the development of cross laminated timber was laid in 1989.
