824. Fritz Wotrube Kirche, Wien Mauer

Dear Diana

This amazing church was built between 1965 and 1976
in a bucolic place near Vienna. Internationally renowned
artist Fritz Wotruba assisted by architect Fritz Mayr were
the building designers. Wotruba wanted to "form something
which shows that poverty needn't mean ugliness, that
renunciation can occur within surroundings which are
beautiful though extremely simple and nevertheless giving
you a feeling of happiness"
