CONCRETE JUNGLE – INSPIRING ARCHITECTURE
as promised in my #outthere post: here’s a very cool place in vienna, tourists and even viennese people usually don’t explore. okay, it’s really far out there in the 23rd district, but it’s worth a visit.
the wotruba church consists of 152 asymmetrically arranged concrete blocks. it was built between 1974 and 1976 in the so called “brutalism” style, that describes buildings made from raw concrete. wotruba was first and foremost a sculptor – so for this project he had to work closely with an architect. the church has been financed by world war 2 survivor and business woman margarethe ottillinger, to show herself thankful for her survival of the russian gulags she has been imprisoned in.
the history of this church is quite impressive and the iconic architecture makes for a really interesting backdrop for this shoot. the fashion i chose had to be minimalistic and detail oriented at the same time, with a little hint of fun in my golden sunglasses from the new carrera collection. carrera has a new project called “out there”, calling everyone to explore the extraordinary. so if you find some place special nearby or even far away feel free to tag your photos #outthere on instagram.
