Hello everyone! I am Noa, A student form Raseko studying technical designe and making my first post about Wien. Today i will be introducing you to the wonders of Austrian architecture form the past and current, to be more precise from the capital of Austria Wien.
Architecture of Wien goes back to the first century AD, the Roman times. starting from a Roman military camp called the Vinobona, which formed part of the large number of similar facilities along the frontier. The camp was situated in what is today the core of the city.
Wien during the early Habsburg times the camp turned to city became the center of Austria one of the biggest German empires at the time, and the leading force of the Holy Roman Empire during the Middle Ages. During this period the city transitioned from a center of trade to a fortress to stop the Ottoman Turks
And now to the real meat of Austrian architecture. Wien as a city of architecture changes between the ages, as it should. Because Wien is such a massive city it is a mix of all sorts of different architectural styles between the ages. I will be talking about the few most important styles or the most famous ones in my opinion.
The city’s mix of different architectural styles makes it a sort of a labyrinth of everything, as some streets are modern, and others are gothic. In the city you will find massive castle like buildings and spiky roofs full of angles and tasteful sharpness as in other streets you will find simple and easy to build brutalism. But the most dominate style of architecture is the fancy gothic style of sharp apartment buildings.
Now i will show you examples of buildings of Wien. You will be amazed!
