Small Group 3-hour History Tour of Vienna Art Nouveau: Otto Wagner and the City Trains
"The question of an efficient infrastructure is a topic that inevitably dominated Vienna during the late 19th century at the moment when the city’s population underwent rapid expansion. The need for a modern system of public transportation was therefore a logical consequence of the city’s demographic and topographic upheavals. Thus in the latter part of the century Vienna’s parliament engaged urban planners to draw up metro lines that were to connect the suburbs with the city centre along the Ring. The architect chosen for this massive and sensitive assignment was Otto Wagner who was already famous for giving materials and functionality a leading role in his work by contrast with the tendency of many of his peers to privilege ornate decoration. From the beginning Wagner’s aim was to create a metro design that would be iconographic easy to recognize and which would fit equally into different regions of the city
From $90.00
