Vanishing Vienna

On the ancient streets that lead in to Vienna such as Trieste Straße, Breitenfurter Straße and Kaltenleutgeben Straße, there exist single-story buildings that have character and beauty but are sometimes perceived as of little or no value. This work explores these buildings that may or may not survive like the many that were abandoned and allowed to deteriorate until demolished. The history and techniques of their demise together with their unique publicness and beauty are contemplated in these 2014 works.
