WAGNER:WERK Museum Postsparkasse

More than 100 years ago, the first part of the "Österreichisches Postsparkassenamt" (Austrian Postal Savings Bank) planned by Otto Wagner was completed and occupied in the Vienna Stubenviertel. This gave the bank, founded in 1883, a headquarters that conveyed its image – modern, innovative, democratic – through equally innovative architecture. The WAGNER:WERK museum was founded in 2005 on the occasion of the centenary. The Small Banking Hall functions as the central exhibition space and uses the materials from the archive of the Postal Savings Bank and from external archives to reconstruct this unique' building's history of ideas and construction. With the help of historical photographs, documents, newspaper reports, plans, competing projects, material samples and the architectural model, the WAGNER:WERK Museum Postsparkasse presents the Austrian Postal Savings Bank and its architect in the context of Vienna around 1900.
