FEATURED IN No B/W or Sepia Monochrome – on July 5, 2014
Taken in Vienna, Austria in the Post Office Savings Bank designed by Otto Wagner and built in 1906. Photo taken on September 5, 2012 with a Sony Cybershot (W650) camera..
Otto Wagner is considered to be an influence on modern architecture. Personally, I find his ideas fascinating. This cold seeming structure in mid-room , studded with apparent rivets (for appearances only), was designed for the light fixtures you can see around the bottom of the spire. It does not look old to me – rather I find it still looks futuristic – for a future I am not sure I want to see. More information can be found on the internet.
