Foyer of the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts

Some weeks ago I spent an afternoon at the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art (MAK). It was originally founded in 1863 as the "Imperial Royal Austrian Musuem of Art and Industry" and designed by famous Austrian architect Heinrich von Ferstel. Today it houses a collection of applied arts, design, architecture and contemporary art. The museum welcomes the visitors with this beautiful late-historicist entrance foyer.
