Architecture and History

The building of the Belvedere 21 is an architectural icon of post-war Modernism. Constructed by Karl Schwanzer for the 1958 Brussels World Expo, it was reinstalled in the Viennese Schweizer Garten. Since 1962 it was used for exhibitions, as the Museum of the Twentieth Century. After reconstruction today it is the venue for contemporary Austrian and international art, film, and music.
