History:
In 1968 Wolf D. Prix, Helmut Swiczinsky, and Michael Holzer founded Coop Himmelb(l)au  in Vienna, Austria. Wolf D. Prix began studying architecture at the Vienna University of Technology and completed his studies at the Architectural Association of London and the Southern California Institute of Architecture. Helmut Swiczinsky started his studies of architecture at the Technische Universitat and continued at the Architectural Association of London. Prix and Swiczinsky were the leading members of the firm and in 1971 Michael Holzer left the team. In 1988 they formed Coop Himmelb(l)au LA / Cloud Inc. LA. Between 1996 and 2006   Karolin Schmidbaur, Wolfdieter Dreibholz, Harald Krieger, among others, joined the firm.
In German, Coop Himmelb(l)au means “Blue Sky Cooperative” or “Sky Building Cooperative”. Coop Himmelb(l)au is an example of Deconstructivist architecture that began in the late 1980’s. “By breaking continuity, disturbing relationships between interior and exterior, fracturing connections between exterior and context, Deconstructivism undermines conventional notions of harmony, unity, and apparent stability” (Stevens, “Deconstructivism”). The designers tend to create assymetrical and unconventional structures with non-rectilinear shapes that are considered as part of a postmodern architecture.
