The manual provides a unique overview of the most important issues that need to be dealt within the first 5 years of an architecture practice. The book was conceived as a combination of three already published wonderland magazines (in an updated form) and two additional chapters of unpublished material. Aside from providing a unique source of reference for architects interested in developing their practices, the manual also addresses institutions and organizations, which deal with the profession (architecture schools, professional organizations, policy makers) throughout Europe. The manual consists of five main chapters: Getting started, Making mistakes, Going public, Getting specialized and Making competitions. The content of the fourth chapter (Getting specialized) will be entirely new material, while the last chapter (Making competitions) will refer to the homonymous exhibition and symposium that took place in Vienna in June 2009. An indispensable book for all who want their young practices to survive.

How to start an architectural office - successfullyFrom the Back Cover:
Wonderland manual is a cultural version of the NATO Cold War strategy of ‘flexible response’. Pursuing the military analogy, the manual is a continuation by other means of what Wonderland has been doing for the past years: accelerating the exchange of information among young architects in Europe. The Wonderland manual differs from other architecture books in that it is not about architecture but about architects, not about the work that architects produce but about how they produce it. It is first and foremost a guide containing facts and figures, tips and experiences and as such can be seen as a handbook for European architects at the start of their careers. Wonderland manual reveals a remarkable commitment to sharing knowledge and experience without any self-interest. While such altruism may not be typical of the entire generation of young architects, it does characterize a considerable portion of it, and most certainly those who have worked in front of and behind the scenes on this book. This young generation is the first to reach adulthood in a Europe without the Iron Curtain. It is also the generation which, despite all the political, economic and cultural complexities of this new Europe, was the first to develop a European mind-set and, in many cases, to lead a border-hopping European lifestyle. It is also the first generation for whom Europe is not an abstraction, not merely a symbol of regulations and bureaucracy, but a self-evident fact, and an equally self-evident field of activity.
