The third edition of the yearbook entitled Architektur Liechtenstein outlines and discusses the work of the University of Liechtenstein’s Institute of Architecture and Planning in the 2011 summer semester. The book focuses on visions for the Principality of Liechtenstein, which were developed by the students from the institute’s Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes as well as its researchers, and are critically examined by experts, professors and lecturers. The projects open up new approaches to solutions for the strategic objectives for the next 10 years, which were defined by the government of the Principality of Liechtenstein in 2010, and are divided into four subject areas: sustainable urban design, housing and energy, identity and networks, as well as nature, residential estates and tourism. A total of 150 students from all over the world created future scenarios for their places of study, which will now be presented to a broader audience in the form of this yearbook.

Summary of the 2011 compact projects
In the anniversary year 2011, approximately 450 students from all the institutes took part in the compact projects from 3 to 8 October. For the first time, these were held at the start of the winter semester. Providing ample opportunities for new experiences, the Compact Project Week, which was entitled “Zinnober Festival”, created a productive departure from regular university life. The integration of architecture and business economics students throughout the semesters was greatly valued by students and lecturers alike. A publication now provides an overview of the results of all 28 workshops.
