Gösserhalle Vienna, Favoriten Building
Of brewing and building—the history of the so-called Gösserhalle in Favoriten, Vienna’s 10th district, is a checkered one. Ever since its construction in 1902, this industrial building, originally used for the storage of beer in barrels and most recently repurposed as an event venue, has, with its distinctive façade with clinker-clad wide arches, defined the character of its urban quarter. This identity-forming brickwork structure is now taken into the future by the design of AllesWirdGut.
