Item description for Architecture in Vienna 1850-1930: New Objectivity by P.M. Lopez Bertha Blaschke...

From the Votivkirche and the Historicism of Vienna's Ringstrasse via the secessionist movement and Jugendstil to the New Objectivity and Vienna's Werkbund Housing Estate: 100 objects, approximately 400 coloured illustrations and five proposals for a delectable architectural tour. At last a sound art-historical guide to the architecture of Vienna from 1850 to 1930. Three generations of architects created Vienna's most important buildings. First and foremost, Otto Wagner, who moved from historicism to become one of the leading secessionist architects, finally paving the way for the New Objectivity. A wide spectrum that not only covers the buildings of Wagner, Hoffmann and Loos, but also lesser known ones as well.

Reviews - What do customers think about Architecture in Vienna 1850-1930: New Objectivity?

An expensive guidebook  Apr 8, 2004
The book sticks to its dates with the focus on the Secessionist architects of the turn of the century. It provides thumbnail photographs and short descriptions of 100 buildings, along with their locations in Vienna. It is a bit overpriced for what is essentially a guidebook. There are no plans or detail drawings to add to your understanding of these buildings and the Werkbundsiedlung is briefly described at the end of the book with a handful of photos but no map of the layout of the housing project built in the early 1930's. It is fine if you are heading to Vienna and want to look these buildings up, but if you are interested in a more in-depth survey of the Vienna Secession or the later Modern buildings then I would suggest to look elsewhere.
