We visit representative buildings along the Danube Canal and look at the ways in which individual firms and institutions present themselves: open and flooded with light, quirky and sculptural, or black-and-white and reflective. In what ways have design means changed with the transition from historicism to modernism and to the present day? Starting at the Postsparkasse, we walk past the Urania to the Uniqa Tower, then we continue to the Sofitel, pass the Media Tower and end our tour at the landing stage for the Twin City Liner.
