Abstract

Kreuzenstein Castle was built between 1874 and 1906 on the ruins of a medieval fortress. It was conceived as a family mausoleum and venue for preserving and displaying the owner’s collection of medieval art, but it can also be interpreted as the idealized vision of a medieval castle from the perspective of the 19th century. This study clarifies to what extent our view of the medieval castle is contingent on the faults, fractures and “constructs” of modernity.

Abstract

This publication documents the life and work of the architect Rolf Geyling (1884-1952), who was a former student of Otto Wagner and started his career in Vienna and Bucharest before the First World War broke out. During the war Geyling documented his experiences as an officer of the Habsburger Monarchy with photographs and a detailed diary, which he continued during his imprisonment in Siberia. After five years in several camps - most recently in Vladivostok - Geyling fled to Tianjin in China, where he successfully established himself as an architect until the period of Mao Tse-tung and was particularly involved in the development of modern architecture in northern China.
