location Venice
function pavilion
contributed by lmattozz

The first draft for the Austrian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale was sketched by Josef Hoffmann in 1913. The project ended up being too costly and eventually the idea was abandoned. In 1926 Emil Hoppe and Otto Schönthal made a new proposal for the pavilion, but that too ended up being too pricey. In 1934 the Austrian government decides to have a competition and Josef Hoffmann eventually wins with a project completely different from his previous one. The pavilion was built in 30 days, but incomplete. Between 1938 and 1954 Hoffmann kept finishing the pavilion and added missing elements such as the lateral porch, the fountain and the garden walls.
