Mario Terzic, My Wings, 1970 Collection Frac Centre-Val de Loire.

Mario Terzic was born in Feldkirch in Austria, and graduated in Industrial Design from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, where he studied between 1964 and 1968. In the early 1970s, Alessandro Mendini published his projects in the magazine Casabella, thus helping to include his conceptual approach within the radical European movement. Since then he has had many exhibitions, produced many garden projects, and undertaken many “journeys”. In 1982-83 he taught at the Hochschule für Gestaltung at Offenbach in Germany, then, from 1991 on, at the School of Applied Arts in Vienna. In 2000, he set up the Department of Landscape Design in the same school, which he still heads today.
