Address
Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Vienna, Austria
Year
2001

The Museumsquartier is a centre for contemporary art equipped with various cultural facilities: museums, art and event halls, an architecture centre (AzW), children's museum and theatre, production spaces for new media, artists studios, restaurants, cafes and theme-related shops. The location in the former Imperial Stables (built by J. Fischer v. Erlach in 1723) offers an ideal link between contemporary culture and the historic tradition as represented by the Hofburg Palace and the two major 19th century museums nearby.

Realization with Manfred Wehdorn
