The Imperial and Royal Post Office Savings Bank
Viennese architecture competition winner in 1903
The massively simplified facade of the bank clearly owes something to classicism. The architect’s key idea was to celebrate modern materials by developing new forms. The entire building facade is covered with square marble plates. These are attached to the main brick structure with mortar and ornamented with iron bolts with aluminum caps, which themselves form a pattern. The metal rivets do not obstruct the facade but resemble decorative elements.

The Nussdorf weir and lock are works of hydraulic engineering located in the Viennese suburb of Nussdorf at the point where the Donaukanal leaves the Danube. The weir and lock were built following the adoption of a new law in July 1892, which also authorised the construction of the Wiener Stadtbahn and the transformation of the Donaukanal into a winter harbour.
