Episode 367: Julia Gaisbacher and I sat down to speak about architecture, Schwarzenegger, and her incredible new book My Dreamhouse is not a House, published recently by The Velvet Cell.

Using archive material and the artist’s photographs, the book investigates several communal housing projects headed by architect Eilfried Huth in Austria during the 1970s and 1980s. Julia looks over the historical motivations for the planning of the communities. She examines the architecture typologically, suggesting a minute reading through community, planning, architectural elements, and repetition.

Her work is at the crossroads of architecture, social convention, and public space. An interdisciplinary artist, Julia works across several mediums explored in this episode. Please look through her site to see many more projects and buy the wonderfully designed book from The Velvet Cell.
