Zacherlfabrik
The factory in Unterdöbling was rebuilt between 1888 and 1892
The street-facing administrative wing of the building, which was designed by Karl Mayreder,
is a rare example of commercially-motivated Orientalism in European architecture.
The ceramic tiles that were used in the facade and on the roof
of the Zacherl factory were produced by the Wienerberger AG.

  7. Beautiful architecture and tiled facade of that former factory. I like the idea that it has been restored so that exhibitions and other cultural events can be held there.

    1. It's an iPhone, Jim. I recently got it for my birthday and I am using it as a point and shoot.
      I love not to have to lug the weight of a big camera around. ;)

  13. I love seeing photos of Vienna. When my family left the old Czechoslovakia, it was to Vienna, (where my aunt was living). We were political refugees because my grandfather was a Lord and an Austrian general and it was too dangerous for my family to stay in an occupied Prague. And we lived in Vienna for a long time while we regrouped and moved on. Each time I go visit, or go live there for a while, each time I reconnect with the language and people, I feel a warmth and a relief to be there. :)
