Description

Published by Taschen, Otto Wagner provides a compact insight into the career of the famous Austrian architect. Wagner’s (1841–1918) work ranges from decorative Art Nouveau gems to innovative architectural use of glass, steel and aluminium. Written by architect and professor August Sarnitz, the book is part of Taschen's Basic Architecture series that presents life and work of internationally renowned architects with approximately 120 photographs, sketches and drafts. The series has been edited by German art historian Peter Gössel.

At once a realist and a visionary, an architect and a builder, Otto Wagner innovated a new era in building-making. Born in Vienna, the visionary architect made his presence felt—he pioneered the use of materials like glass, steel, and aluminum, in a ceaseless experimentation with form that would come to redefine Viennese structural identity, and urban architecture altogether.
