Building Bridges: From the World’s Fair to the Belvedere 21
The Belvedere 21 is housed in one of the most architecturally important postwar buildings in Austria. The Viennese architect Karl Schwanzer designed this pavilion, which represented Austria at the World’s Fair in Brussels in 1958. Its underlying bridge motif represented neutrality and unity among nations, as well as Austria’s position between East and West, and was simultaneously a powerful symbol of postwar reconstruction. Awarded the Grand Prix d’Architecture, the structure was transferred to Vienna where it reopened as a museum in 1962. Over the decades the building has undergone a fascinating transformation. This guided tour will conjure up an image of the pavilion’s “built culture,” telling a story of past milestones and contemporary trends in the middle of a newly emerging neighborhood.
