(A surplus of seed, a surplus of rent (money), and a surplus of friends, three things as good as anyone ever had). Good advice in everyone! A perfect travel companion.

The publication presents 40 international projects from two competition rounds for nine locations in six Austrian towns and cities: Amstetten, Bruck/Mur, Graz, Linz, St. Pölten and Vienna—six first prizes, nine second prizes, five special mentions and 20 shortlisted projects.
