Otto Wagner is referred to as the “Father of Viennese Modernism,” and is considered to be one of the most important international architects. The publication accompanying the exhibition POST-OTTO WAGNER: From the Postal Savings Bank to Post-Modernism takes a look at the interaction between Wagner and other protagonists of early Modernism, as well as at Wagner’s infl uence on his contemporaries, students, and future generations of architects and designers. Using a generous amount of in many cases previously unknown graphic material, this publication concentrates on Wagner’s infl uence on international architecture from the turn of the 20th century until the present, as well as on the many important architects who emerged from his school, thus illustrating the complex network of connections between Modernism and Postmodernism.

Published for the exhibition of the same title (30.5.-30.9.2018) at the MAK.
