Collection Adalbert Klaar

Farmhouse plans from the Adalbert Klaar Collection of the European Ethnology Library

Adalbert Josef Klaar (born August 27, 1900 in Vienna, † May 23, 1981 in Klosterneuburg) was an Austrian architect, civil engineer, author, building researcher, scientist and monument conservator. In the early 1980s, he bequeathed his entire collection of plan drawings of Austrian farmhouses to the Institute for Folklore/Institute for European Ethnology at the University of Vienna. The institute owns a total of 292 original plan drawings of farmhouses.

Most of the drawn farmhouses come from Lower Austria (161 plans), followed by Salzburg (61 plans), Upper Austria (38 plans) and Styria (32 plans). The farmhouses are shown from different perspectives (floor plan, elevation, cross section, etc.) and supplemented with additional handwritten information such as house name, address, date of drawing, dimensions, detailed descriptions (e.g. "Stube", "Kammer", "Ofen" etc.).
