Abstract:
From the late 1880s to 1938, the protagonists of the book Camillo Sitte, Otto Wagner, Josef Maria Olbrich, Joseph August Lux, Oskar Strnad and Felix Augenfeld created a modern and site-specific architecture beyond the break of the World War. They wanted
to meet the needs of a modern mass society with differentiated urban spaces and contextually integrated buildings. In the formulation of this site-specific variant of a decidedly modern architecture, newly developed, non-historicistic references to history played an important role, such as the discovery of the vernacular architecture of the inner city of Vienna and the suburbs of the Vormärz. In five differently tailored chapters, architectural key works and theories are re-contextualized in their immediate context of origin.
