The lecture will be devoted to the Vienna architecture at the turn of the 19th century. It is related to the exhibition „Otto Wagner. Vienna - Architecture Around 1900”. It will deal with the multidimensional and colourful image of the tendencies defining Vienna architecture at the end of 19th and beginning of XXth century.


In the second half of the 19th century Vienna became a vivid, modern metropolis. The growing political importance of the city and its position as an important cultural centre was confirmed by such urban architectural projects as Ringstrasse – a monumental city artery. It was along Ringstrasse that many representative, public buildings were located (such as a town hall, an opera, a university, museums), as well as boulevards, parks and city palaces.


The architecture of the Austrian capital reminds us not only of historical forms, but also of the artistic breakthrough that left its mark on the city at the turn of the 19th century. It is demonstrated, for example, by the Vienna Art Nouveau, which thanks to Otto Wagner and Josef Hoffmann acquired its special, local character, also in architecture.


The meeting will take place on-line via Zoom platform. The participation is free. In order to receive the virtual invitation, please send a message to: warsztaty@mck.krakow.pl.
