Austrian architect Roland Rainer (1910 - 2004) was chief urban planner for the city of Vienna from 1958 to 1961. He was also an influential teacher who trained a generation of architects. Of great significance for his teaching was his interest in the vernacular buildings of all countries and periods; he analysed similar types, studying functional order, scale and other elements that characterize them as successful examples of humane architecture. He was also a constant critic of environmental destruction. In his 1972 book "Livable Environments," Rainer stated that architecture should be integrated with landscape, even subordinated to it, by building with local materials, and making buildings "so unobtrusive that they, in effect, disappear."
