Architecture in Vienna 1850 to 1930: Historicism-Jugendstil-New Realism

Architecture in Vienna 1850 to 1930: Historicism-Jugendstil-New Realism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the Votivkirche and the Historicism of Vienna's Ringstrasse via the secessionist movement and Jugendstil to the New Objectivity and Vienna's Werkbund Housing Estate: 100 objects, approximately 400 coloured illustrations and five proposals for a delectable architectural tour. At last a sound art-historical guide to the architecture of Vienna from 1850 to 1930. Three generations of architects created Vienna's most important buildings. First and foremost, Otto Wagner, who moved from historicism to become one of the leading secessionist architects, finally paving the way for the New Objectivity. A wide spectrum that not only covers the buildings of Wagner, Hoffmann and Loos, but also lesser known ones as well.
