GASOMETER
PHOTOS MAPS STREET VIEW

Vienna’s most spectacular construction project in decades is the transformation of what was one of the largest gas works in Europe (1896–99) into apartments, student housing, offices, restaurants, cinemas, casinos, etc. Each tank was assigned to a famous architectural team (Gasometer A: Jean Nouvel; B: Coop Himmelb(l)au; C: Wehdorn Architekten; D: Wilhelm Holzbauer). Although it has not yet revitalized the surrounding area as hoped, it is still an impressive example of how former industrial sites can be transformed.
