In the 1960s and '70s churches provided an ideal field of activity for architects. As the spirit of a theological new departure accompanying the Second Vatican Council met the innovative architecture of Brutalism.

Archaic and today still radical looking church buildings were completed all over Austria with an uncompromising use of raw concrete.

This bus tour shows well-known but also forgotten Viennese examples:

Oblatenkloster, Johann Pleyer

Zum Guten Hirten parish church, Ceno and Herta Kosak

Konzilsgedächtniskirche, Josef Lackner

Wotruba church, Fritz Wotruba and Fritz G. Mayr
