Last Friday I had the opportunity to visit the Semperdepot. The building was designed by Gottfried von Semper and Karl von Hasenauer and constructed from 1874 to 1877. Originally it served as a depot for the stage sets of the Austrian Federal Theatres. Today it houses studios of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, other parts (like the Prospect Court in this photo) can be rented for events. It was the first time that I was inside the Semperdepot without attending an event... Please click here and here for older photos taken during events.
