Let One Hundred Flowers Bloom 

Europe, a continent in upheaval, where once prosperous regions are declining and others are lifting themselves from the shadows and stepping into the bright light. The latter category includes Vorarlberg, which has awoken from the twilight of history in the last third of the century. It goes without saying that the region, which in the past decades has become a driving force of innovation in the country primarily due to architecture, design and art, is in search of a new self-image. With the new “Vorarlberg Museum” by architects Cukrovicz Nachbaur, the region gives itself a new and radiant image.
