The work of Otto Wagner, and his role as the ‘Father of Modernism,’ is being explored at the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts (MAK).

The exhibition POST-OTTO WAGNER: From the Postal Savings Bank to Post-Modernism coincides with the 100th anniversary of Wagner’s death, and looks at the influence of his work – on his students, and subsequent generations of architects and designers. Some of Wagner’s best-known buildings are featured, including the Vienna Metropolitan Railway (1894-1900) and the Imperial Royal Austrian Postal Savings Bank (1903-1910). It also explores the context in which Wagner was working, and the relationship he had with his contemporaries. See the website for full details of talks, and walks related to the exhibition.
