Summary

Ireland, the land of saints and scholars, has always been prized for its folk wisdom. Here are over 250 "seanfhocail" (literally, old words) - proverbs and sayings - with their translations, that still resonate today. They remind us that “Ní féidir an sheanfhocail a shárú” (You can’t beat an old saying); “An té a bhíonn siúlach, bíonn sé scéalach (He who has travelled has knowledge); and “Fuighilleach síl, fuighilleach cíosa, agus fuighilleach carad, trí rud chomh maith agus bí ag aon duine riamh. (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.

Under the theme of EUROPEAN URBANITY—THE ADAPTABLE CITY, fundamental aspects of a contemporary architecture program and the adaptability of European cities are presented for discussion: how do concepts put forward by young competition winners contribute to the positive development of our cities? 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.
