Synopsis: This is a study on the explosion of architectural ideas during the last decades of the Hapsburg Empire and in the first years of the new republics of Central Europe. Despite the cultural battleground of competing linguistic, ethnic, religious and natural traditions and aspirations, the region was nevertheless host to a persistent cosmopolitan ideal. This publication looks at the city as both the principal site of innovation and experimentation in the period and the generator of a vibrant urban culture.
