Discover changes in modern architecture in Vienna by considering the work of Otto Wagner, who proclaimed the birth of a “modern” style in his manifesto Modern Architecture (1896), and Adolf Loos, who exhibited a keen interest in gardens and vernacular buildings as inspirations for the design of modern architecture. Explore the work of Josef Frank and early settlement projects in Vienna, which led the way for municipal projects of modernity in the 1920s.
