Werkbund Housing: Vienna - IMPRI Impact and Policy Research Institute

Manoj Parmar

The Werkbund housing in Vienna epitomizes the ethos of very early stage modernity along with fresh explorations in housing that not only set the trends in Vienna but across all Europe. The ribbon windows, composition of perforations, the brutal volumes along with the softness of corner windows, and a palate of architectural types trended into the rigorous quality of housing aspirations in Vienna.

The Werkbund housing has a special place in the history of modern architecture along with other experimentations in Red Vienna, Weissenhof Estate Housing. The Werkbund experimentation also sets the tone of the architecture of housing as industrial design, which influenced the formation of the Bauhaus School of thought.
