    Aims and Scope

    The Zacherlhaus is located in the heart of Vienna, just 180 meters from St. Stephen's Cathedral, and is one of the most important buildings created by the Otto Wagner School. It was built in the years from 1900 to 1913 and designed for its owner Johann Zacherl by Joesef Plecnik, who later taught at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and from 1925 worked on the urban renewal of Ljubljana. It was the first combined residential and commercial building of modern style in the historic inner city and is one of the best known buildings in Vienna.

    This generously illustrated, authentic publication documents the building and its thorough renovation, which will be completed in 2015; it includes contributions by experts on European architecture of the 20th century.

    "Dieses Buch zum Zacherlhaus, mit historischen und aktuellen Fotos und umfangreichem Planmaterial angereichert, bietet nicht nur einen vertieften Einblick in das Wiener Stadthaus, sondern wird durch diverse pointierte Analysen und Kommentare mit architekturtheoretischen Positionierungen zum Werk des slowenischen Architekten ergänzt."
