Otto Wagner. The Master of Viennese Art Nouveau - Exhibition catalogue
At once an urban planner, architect, designer, theoretician, and teacher, Otto Wagner (1841-1918) was one of the leading European architects of the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, whose influence extended far beyond the borders of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
His major works, ranging from the infrastructure of the Vienna underground railway (1894-1900) to the Vienna Post Office Savings Bank (1903-1910) and the Church of St Leopold am Steinhof (1902-1904), are milestones in the genesis of modern architecture.
The present book brings together articles by the best European specialists on the architect and is richly illustrated with documents from Wagner's archives, most of which are kept in the Vienna Museum. It accompanies and extends the first monographic exhibition devoted to Otto Wagner in France, at the Cité de l'architecture & du patrimoine.
