I’ve never been to Vienna but I can tell you that it is beautiful because this video by FilmSpektakel basically takes you all over the capital of Austria through a fun zooming effect that teleports you to different landmarks. It’s sort of like traveling on a haze of drugs and booze.
From a bridge that makes walking an adventure to a cost-effective way to revitalize an aging port, Architizer’s A+ Awards announced yesterday include smart and simple architecture for everyday life. Here are a few public structures that make grand statements about our changing cities or solve a universal problem in a…
A new tower designed by Los Angeles architect Thom Mayne was announced today which, when complete, will be the tallest building in Europe. Is it in Moscow? London? Frankfurt? Nope. Mayne's shiny slab will stab the sky in the tiny hamlet of Vals, Switzerland.
What do art and high-energy physics have in common? Quite a bit, if you think about it: Space, time, and the structure of the visible and invisible world, for starters. That's why CERN has spent the past four years inviting artists into its headquarters, and why, for the first time, it's now inviting an architect to…
It seems that, every time the heavy rain season comes, some Austrians live in a permanent situation of impending disaster. Just look at these homes right next to a flood protection wall that seems about to burst and destroy everything.
The idea of super-dense cities building new structures on top of old buildings has been kicking around sci-fi novels and architecture circles for decades, but the idea still isn't ubiquitous. In Austria, the owner of a 1950s-era building is giving it a shot.
Sure, the larch-wood cladding gives Ufogel a kind of rustic charm, but I'll be damned if this Austrian guest house doesn't really look like it just beamed down from a quaint corner of outer space.
China has long been known for its knock-offs and copy-cat merch, but this latest project is some next-level kind of counterfeit crazy.
Sounds like somebody's got a case of the Mondays. Reuters reports that an unemployed Austrian man was so dead-set against returning to work he lopped off his left foot.
You know in The Temple of Doom when the mine cart's brake gives out and obviously everyone is going to shoot out the side of a mountain and die? This is sort of that, except on purpose and in Austria.
Sometimes I think the Europeans know how to live. In Vienna, Austria they've created a gigantic 5-story "hangout spot" complete with hammocks to sprawl out in. The best part is the view. It's a gigantic Tower of Boobs.
Not happy with cloning watches, iPods, trains and even combat airplanes, the Chinese are now cloning an entire European city. And not any city, but the mountain town of Hallstatt, Austria, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
An Austrian man who has been identified as just Andreas K. is one lucky bastard. While digging around in his yard back in 2007, he managed to find a treasure trove of jewelry and ornaments buried 650 years ago.
An Austrian production of French Revolutionary opera ‘Andre Chenier' is set to start in July, on the banks of beautiful Lake Constance. Not quite so beautiful is the eery, incomplete, massive human torso (with 49-foot head) that provides the stage.
Well, this ought to make a lot of morning commutes a little more interesting! Austrian architects have converted streets in the city of Graz into a makeshift track, lanes and all. Late for work? Now you'll have some serious motivation.
Here I was, thinking Europeans were meant to be classier than Americans—but have you ever heard of a Rectum Bar outside of Vienna, Austria? Do you even know what a rectum is?
To me, a festival is a field, a few musical acts, pair of rain boots, and heaps of mud. But then, I do live in England. Roboexotica, on the other hand, is robots and cocktails. Much more civilized.
