The depiction of architecture through language: Few contemporary architects have pursued this issue so pointedly and steadfastly as Wolf D. Prix of the Vienna studio Coop Himmelb(l)au. Texts play a prominent role in the award-winning architectural office's creative output. Get Off of My Cloud gathers together the first representative selection of writings including programmatic contributions, aphorisms, interviews, polemics, speeches, and lectures. The texts, written in the time from 1968 to 2005, open a multitude of insights into the theoretical and artistic content of the expansive work of Coop Himmelb(l)au. They likewise illuminate the work of other architects and pose provocative questions for architecture, art, and politics. (English edition ISBN 978-3-7757-1671-0)

»Prix divides his book into what he calls programmatic texts, project texts, lectures, interviews, and a section called ‘On Friends and Foes’. In each, he expresses himself clearly and without pretension or theorybabble.«
