Architecture and Urban Planning in Fin de Siècle Vienna: Experimentation, Modernization, and Traditionalism
This exhibit explores the stylistic, cultural, and historical forces that shaped architecture and urban planning in Vienna at the turn of the twentieth century. This project centers on the significant buildings, urban sites, infrastructure development, key architects, the planning of the Ringstrasse, as well as the creation of the Prater park, examining the multiple layers of the city, the built landscape and urban life past, and our present experiences of the city through image, video, sound, and narrative.
This exhibit was created during the Spring 2011 course, "Vienna 1900 and the End of an Empire", an interdisciplinary course in the 360 Degree program, taught by History of Art Professor Christiane Hertel and Professor of German, Imke Meyer of Bryn Mawr College.
We must thank Professors Imke Meyer and Christiane Hertel, Digital Collections Specialist Cheryl Klimaszewski, digital technology assistant Jennifer Lopatin, and our fellow classmates for all of your enthusiasm and guidance through this project, and finally, Bryn Mawr College, for supporting our research both local and abroad.
