Otto Wagner (1841-1918) is one of the most important figures in the architecture of the turn of the century. It is traditionally associated with the Vienna Secession, a group of artists and designers led by Gustav Klimt that initiated a shift away from the conservative style of the Vienna Künstlerhaus. Wagner's visionary approach, described as structural rationalism, introduces new materials such as glass, steel and above all aluminum into architecture and redefines Viennese architectural identity.

Discover the wealth of Wagner's projects, from the impressive building of the Vienna Postal Savings Bank to the brilliant church of St. Leopold in Steinhof, one of the most important art nouveau church buildings in the world, against the background of the political, economic and social events of his time.

This insightful overview also includes a map of the architect's most famous projects and new, up-to-date images from photography masters such as Keiichi Tahara.
