Vienna in Autumn
Josef Frank's Werkbundsiedlung

Indian Summer Afternoon
13th District

"Vienna’s Werkbundsiedlung,
a workers’ association housing complex,
is one of the few Werkbund ensembles
from the 1920s and 1930s
that remains intact."

"Thirty-one renowned architects,
including Josef Hoffmann and Adolf Loos,
worked under the direction of Josef Frank
and constructed the modernist architectural complex in 1932."

The World Monuments Fund

  1. Wow, it must have been quite something in it's day. I would never have guessed it was built as early the 30's.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
