Otto Wagner is considered the "father of Viennese modernism" and one of the most important international architects. The publication on the MAK exhibition takes a look at the interactions between Wagner and other protagonists of early modernism as well as Wagner's influence on contemporaries, students and subsequent generations of architects and designers such as Josef Hoffmann, Jože Plečnik, Leopold Bauer, Rudolph M. Schindler, Frank Lloyd Wright, Auguste Perret, Frei Otto, Aldo Rossi and Robert Venturi/Denise Scott Brown. With generous and often unknown images, the book illustrates Wagner's influence on international architecture from the turn of the century to the present and thus a rich network of connections between modernity and postmodernism.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name ' POST OTTO WAGNER ', (May 30th - September 30th, 2018) at the MAK.

With contributions from Christoph Thun-Hohenstein, Sebastian Hackenschmidt, Iris Meder, Ákos Moravánszky
