The largest, heaviest, most powerful and fastest steam locomotive ever built in Austria is back at the Technisches Museum Wien from 12 October. Within an exhibition designed by BWM, in addition to the carefully restored original an interactive video installation brings this legend of the Austrian railway history to new life.
Since BWM’s founding, it has evolved to encompass a wide range of business areas that complement one another, in turn creating real added value.Daniela Walten

We have won the high-profile competition for a visitor’s centre for the Vienna State Opera! The judges’ decision was unanimous: “We were impressed by BWM Architekten’s preliminary study and the fact that the opera house would be opened up to Herbert von Karajan Square, the stream of visitors is guided by open lines of sight …”
If one sees the path from Heldenplatz up the magnificent staircase into the House of Austrian History as a journey – accompanied by architecture – through time into the present, I hope that after visiting the exhibition, as they walk back through those same monumental rooms, the visitors may have a changed, more forward-looking perspective …Johann Moser
