Item description for Architecture Vienna: 700 Buildings by Andrea Lyman August Sarnitz...
August Sarnitz has followed architecture in Vienna for over a decade in his Springer guides. The new guide discusses 700 buildings from all periods built in all styles that can be seen in Vienna.
A focal point is on the more recent building and planning schemes that have given Vienna a new image -- also in terms of preservation. Essays by recognized specialists and critics address the controversial debate on city renewal and give the reader a differentiated view of the exemplary collection of buildings in the guide help readers visualize planning relationships.
The lexical quality of the indexes on the chronology of construction and architects, the essays on styles, history and city planning, as well as maps make the new guide to an essential vademecum for tourists as well as for all readers interested in architecture.
