Omega Palace Department Store, Kuba & Pilar Architekti | Brno | Czech Republic | MIMOA

The Omega Palace Department Store on Svobody Square in Brno is part of a block of big, neo-renaissance and baroque buildings and interwoven with internal passages. The design links up with this structure via a horizontal passage that runs through the store and connects the square with the neighbouring Alfa Palace. Escalators in the central hall connect the various floors. The elevation facing the square is a modern interpretation of the neighbouring buildings: the opalescent glass suggests…

Modern architecture

Starting in the 1960s, Viennese post-war architecture has set new accents in the city. In the 1980s and 1990s, revolutionary residential buildings were proposed. And in the first decade of the 21st century, new architectural landmarks arose in Vienna, such as the MuseumsQuartier and Danube City.

The body language of the two towers nicknamed it “dancing building” and "Fred and Ginger”. Prominently located along the River Vltava in a historic district, it is one of Pragues most controversial buildings. The site was originally occupied by a Neo-renaissance house from the end of the 19th century, destroyed during bombing in 1945, its remains finally removed in 1960. The neighboring house (with a small globe on the roof) was co-owned by Czech ex-president Vaclav Havel, who lived there…

The institution opened on the 60th anniversary of the start of the Holocaust in Hungary. It is the first of its kind in East-Central Europe to research and present the Holocaust in a comprehensive manner by focusing on its historical and social dimensions. 60.000 names of the approximately 600.000 victims are engraved as a memento onto the 8 meter tall glass wall surrounding the courtyard. The building complex is a mix of classical and modern architecture. It incorporates an old synagogue…

Spittelau District Heating Plant, Friedensreich Hundertwasser | Vienna | Austria | MIMOA

Vienna has the persistence of its former mayor Helmut Zilk to thank for Hundertwasser having taken on the task of redesigning the exterior of the Spittelau District Heating Plant. Originally Hundertwasser had opposed the idea upon consulting his friend, environmentalist Bernd Lötsch, as he had fundamental objections to a garbage-incinerating plant as long as all possibilities for avoiding garbage were not exhausted. When it was promised that the plant would be equipped with the most modern…

The project is part of a revitalization initiative undertaken by the city of Vienna for the Wiener Guertel, an over-dimensioned, ring-formed slice through the urban fabric. The site is formed via the culmination of densely overlapping infrastructural elements: the “Spittelauer Leande” is one of Vienna’s most highly traveled roadways; the Danube Canal connecting Germany to Hungary. The housing is built along the Donaukanal, over Otto Wagner’s elevated metro viaduct.

Secession Building, Joseph Maria Olbrich | Vienna | Austria | MIMOA

The large, white, cubic Secession Building was designed by architect Joseph Maria Olbrich in 1897 as the manifesto of the Secessionist movement. The exhibition hall opened in October 1898. Most of the original interior was looted during World War II and the building was left in a desolate state until the passion for Viennese Art Nouveau was rediscovered in the 1970s and the pavilion rescued from decay. The building is quite sober and only uses two colours, white and gold. Due to its massive…
