“Too much of a contrast”
Review of Haas Haus

Haas Haus
Ranked #167 of 777 things to do in Vienna
Attraction details
Reviewed August 12, 2017 via mobile

Really not a fan of modern architecture in the old city centres. Especially in Vienna's old city. Too modern and too much in contrast with surroundings, especially St Stephan's Cathedral.

Building itself is rather nice, but location is not. Shame, just some hundred meters in any direction and it'll be really nice addition to Vienna...

Designed by Hans Hollein, the Haas Haus is classic postmodernist architecture! The building is marmite- people either love it or hate it, owing to its contrast with the adjacent St Stephens cathedral. For me, it's well detailed and represents a quality piece of modern architecture of its own time. It's subjective, but I think that the Haas Haus sits well within historic centre of Vienna

A glass building in a historical square. You can see zara in first sight on first floor. The nicest thing about this building is the reflection of adjacent buildings on the exterior surface

Found this and enjoyed the designs.
Would have loved to gone inside.. It was after hours . And would enjoy knowing more about the architect.
It's odd buildings hundreds of years old and then this modern building!

This postmodern monster vis a vis Stephansdom? Bad joke. I just don´t like modern architecture in the historical parts... especially next to the almost seven centuries old cathedral.
