MY PIECE OF VIENNA
The model of Vienna's first district was created in 1898 on the occasion of Emperor Francis Joseph's 50th crown jubilee and as a symbol of the growth and transformation that made Vienna one of the world's major cities at the turn of the 20th century. While the Wien Museum is renovated and expanded, the model – 13’x16.5’ and made of paper – has to undergo extensive conservation.
