From the Late Gothic and the Renaissance to the Baroque and Classicism, Historicism and Art Nouveau, and the present architectural era: 100 years after Otto Wagner’s death, the two-part presentation Masterworks of Architectural Drawing from the Albertina Museum reveals new insights into the fascinating genre of architectural drawing.

The Architecture Collection’s history has resulted in a fascinating degree of diversity, and its 40,000 works make it the largest special collection of the Albertina Museum’s Graphic Arts Collection. This showing, with its array of important sketches, studies, and designs, presents highlights by figures including Francesco Borromini, Andrea Pozzo, Canaletto, Salomon Kleiner, Franz Alt, Otto Wagner, Adolf Loos, Josef Frank, Clemens Holzmeister, Hans Hollein, Zaha Hadid and numerous others.

The exhibition is on view from 22 June until 23 September 2018.
