Edited by Oliver Croy and Oliver Elser. The book was published to accompany exhibitions in the Austrian Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art, Vienna (19.01.?18.03.2001) and the German Museum of Architecture, Frankfurt/Main (03.05.?14.06.2001). Designed in collaboration with Thorsten Platz.

The artist Oliver Croy discovered 387 small architectural designs in a junk shop ? all packed very neatly into rubbish bags. He found out that they were from the late Viennese insurance officer Peter Fritz?s estate. Together with the architectural critic Oliver Elser, he brought the ?Fritz research? into being.
