Bleed is working on a book series for Coop Himmelb(l)au that will be internationally published in autumn 2010.
Coop Himmelb(l)au is a cooperative architectural design firm primarily located in Vienna, Austria, which now also maintains offices in Los Angeles, United States and Guadalajara, Mexico. The firm’s name Himmelblau translates from German into English as ‘sky blue’, Himmelbau translates to ‘heaven construction’.
Coop Himmelb(l)au was founded by Wolf Prix, Helmut Swiczinsky and Michael Holzer and gained international acclaim alongside Peter Eisenman, Zaha Hadid, Frank Gehry with the 1988 exhibition, “Deconstructivist Architecture” at the Museum of Modern Art. Their work ranges from commercial buildings to residential projects. Recognized as seminal for the architecture of the future, the works of Coop Himmelb(l)au have continually been the subject of international exhibitions. Over the past three decades Coop Himmelb(l)au has received numerous international awards.
Bleed has a history of working with other creatives and loves the challenge. We are very much looking forward to cooperating with the internationally acclaimed architects at Coop Himmelb(l)au!
