Corner view Vienna: Typical architecture


This week's corner view theme is typical architecture. Above, you see some examples of architecture from Vienna's art nouveau period. The great Austrian architect from that period was Otto Wagner and he designed the Wiener Stadtbahn, Kirsche am Steinhof, Karlsplatz Stadtbahn Station and Majolica House, a.o.

If you want to see more typical architecture from around the world, jump over to Jane at Spain Daily.
