House Attack, Austria

From series “Top 16 Most Amazing Buildings of the Planet”
Year: 2006.

Misunderstandings and conflicts can sometimes occur between the houses. The confirmation is the building you can see in Vienna. The architectural complex 'House Attack' is the project by Erwin Wurm. This is a strict gray building, the main construction of which is the upper construction. In the roof of the large building is another smaller house, as if it had fallen on the large building from the sky.

The original house was built in 2006 and is a location of the Museum of Contemporary Art. The author of the project, Erwin Wurm, has the original sense of humor that has reflected in this strange project. The architectural project in Vienna is incredibly complicated from a technical point of view. In order to strengthen the small house with a red roof on the roof of the larger building, the architects and the construction workers had to take a lot of effort. To make the construction easier and make it safer, the complicated steel structure was fixed within the tiny building.

The MUMOK Museum, housed in 'House Attack', presents the visitor more than 7,000 unique works of art, the authors of which are the talented young painters of the 19th and 20th centuries. The building, which fully reflects the particularity of the talented sculptor's style, is also a masterpiece of modern architecture. Next - Air Force Academy Chapel
