Around the turn of the century, Otto Wagner was one of the most radical architects of his time. In 1894 he claimed a revival of architecture and articulated the opinion that imitation of historical styles cannot be the future of construction. The Post Office Savings Bank on Ring Boulevard, erected between 1904-1906, is one of his celebrated works. Innovative in its design and the choice of materials, the building perfectly represents the new idea of functionality.
