Between 1911 and 1913, three grandstands were built along the trotting track in the Krieau according to the plans of the architects and Otto Wagner students Emil Hoppe, Marcel Kammerer and Otto Schönthal. The elegant reinforced concrete buildings are not only among the earliest constructions of their kind, but also fascinate with numerous decorative details, which at the same time give the functional buildings an aesthetically sophisticated appearance.
After two of the grandstands had been vacant for years, their extensive restoration and the architecturally and technically demanding conversion into a modern office was recently completed. Together with a connecting new building, these icons of modernity will serve as innovative working environments in the future, so that their sustainable use is secured for the future while preserving their cultural and historical value.
On the day of the monument, you will get an insight into this extraordinary project and the practical preservation of monuments as part of guided tours by architect Martin Kohlbauer (planning architect), architect Heideschicht (project manager value one) and Irene Humenberger (Federal Monuments Office).
