Raimund Abraham

Throughout a 40-year career, Raimund Abraham created visionary projects and built works of architecture, in Europe and the United States. From 1952-1958, Abraham studied at the Technical University of Graz, and in 1959, he established a studio in Vienna, where he explored the depths and boundaries of architecture through building, drawing, and montage. Abraham's first book, the 1965 publication "Elementare Architektur" was made at a time of transition between architecture studies and practice. In this early volume on elemental structures, Abraham explores the built environment, absent aesthetic speculation, and determinations about design instead coming from the relative level of knowledge and also the desires of the builder. In 1964, Abraham emigrated to the United States.


The work of Raimund Abraham has been exhibited widely at museums and galleries worldwide, including Moderna MuseetStockholmSwedenMuseo CorrerVeniceItalyCentre PompidouParisFrancePinacothecaAthensGreeceNational Gallery (Berlin)Venice BiennaleGerman Architecture Museum, Frankfurt; Krinzinger Gallery, Innsbruck; Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts of Chicago, Illinois; and the Museum of Modern Art and Architectural League of New York.
