Modern Signs on Baroque Architecture


I love the architecture of Vienna.  This building caught my attention while strolling along the Pedestrian District.  It is eclectic as one can see.  A Baroque architecture with modern signs on it.  While this may seem like the urban planners wanted a postmodern style, it isn’t.  The building is not modern at all.  It dates back to the days of Franz Joseph, the presumptive heir to the Austria-Hungarian throne in the late 1800s.

Clearly, the city planners were looking to a robust capitalist future while hanging on the rich heritage from the past.



Taken with the iPhone 7 plus.  I dig it.
