Visionary Architecture of the 1920s

"Red Vienna" was the political experiment of Vienna's Labour government of the 1920s and early 1930s. It was aimed at creating a model culture for the urban proletariat and was unrivalled worldwide. Sunshine and fresh air at last - also for the working classes! This tour focusses on two of its architectural flagships: the Karl-Marx-Estate, often dubbed 'One Kilometer of Art Deco', and the Amalienbad, one of the world's largest and most prestigious public baths of Europe. Their functional yet impressive architecture attracted the admiration of contemporary architects and polititians alike, and has lost none of its impact and appeal. On this tour also learn about the appalling living conditions of the less fortunate of the erstwhile imperial metropolis and how, between 1919 and 1933, Vienna's Labour government tried to put its Austro-Marxist ideas of a better future for the working classes into reality within the framework of democracy.
