Houses tell their story - Research for 3SI Immogroup

03/2022

Gründerzeit houses are as much a part of Vienna's cityscape as the Giant Ferris wheel is part of the Prater. They are an important chapter in the city`s history. Not only do these houses tell a diverse architectural and stylistic story, but also the cultural history of the emerging Viennese bourgeoisie. Who were the architects and clients of these magnificently decorated houses? How were they used and what structural changes took place? Every single Gründerzeit house in the 3Si ImmoGroup portfolio tells its own story. wesearch has reconstructed some of these stories.

Anniversary – The Vienna City Park turns 160

03/2022

This year the Vienna City Park celebrates its 160th anniversary. It was realized by the city gardener Rudolph Siebeck together with the landscape painter Joseph Selleny. But before its opening in the summer of 1862, heated debates were held in the city council about the design of the park. In a research project of the City of Vienna (MA7), wesearch dealt with the planning and design of the city park. In the course of the anniversary, we will guide tours through the City Park, publish our research results and post regularly on this topic on our Instagram channel.
