1841

Wien -re-definitions of railway concepts, railway, symbol of Modern age 

4 different station buildings in this area – always built completely new… a station is a “Visitenkarte” of the City

The only thing that survived the transformations of the stations is the statue of the “Markuslöwe” – reference to the south, Venice, even Orient, something beautiful, exotic

Station etymology: Zentral-, Haupt-,…East, West… Mitte – relativity and non-neutrality, each name gives a meaning, feeling. Renaming the metro station Südtiroler Platz to “Hauptbahnhof” still leaves it 400m far away

Kopfbahnhof – Wien is the beginning and the end – who would want to pass through Wien? now this concept has changed. Intersection of Bezirks (Landstrasse, Wieden, Margareten, Favoriten, Meidling)

1955-1961 Heinrich Hrdlicka

3 levels: tickets, shops + trains to Hungary, Prague + trains to SK, Semmering, SLO, IT

in the last 60 years, the standards for quality have changed

Glass roof was damaged, low platforms, need to change the trains from a different station, not making the train travelling attractive, since 2006 – media comunication about the transformation

objects worth keeping -> Wien Museum, das Technische Museum, Kulturverband Favoriten – 14 days to remove the interesting objects between demolition and operation

3 objects under the protection: Markuslöwe (*1872/73), Mosaic “Fernweh” 1958, Rudolf Hautzinger (today in Wien Museum), computer art installation Einen Augenblick Zeit, Kurt Hofstetter (Today in ZKM Karlsruhe) from 1994

Denkmalschutz – excavations of the former layers, at the site of HBF old Panzer (1943) was found
