Guided TOUR 3: DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE IN VIENNA’S ALSERGRUND
ARCH ON TOUR, VIENNA DESIGN WEEK
Train stations are places of departure, just like this tour. After starting at the Althan Quartier above Franz-Josefs-Bahnhof, which was designed by the work group of architects around Karl Schwanzer and erected between 1974 and 1978, the overview tour provides insight into the building’s history and in passing highlights selected contributions at this year’s Festival Headquarters at the same time. The walk leads straight through Vienna’s Alsergrund to a new architectural highlight: the noteworthy extension of the Lycée Français de Vienne and the related renovation of Studio Molière by Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes (2016). As part of a special guided tour with project head Rupert Siller, the new location, which isn’t normally open to the public, can be inspected by participants. The tour ends at the Lycée Français de Vienne.
