Prof. Manfred Wehdorn played a key role in renovation of the CITY PALACE, which lasted from 2008 to 2013. To mark the 10-year anniversary of the project’s completion, we talked to Viennese architect Prof. Wehdorn about the complex work involved.
10-year anniversary of the CITY PALACE
After around five years of renovation work the CITY PALACE of the Princely Family of Liechtenstein has appeared in all its former glory since April 2013. An insight into an extensive renovation and preservation of monuments at the highest level.
Above the city skyline - restoration work on Roman deities offers spectacular views
Despite their size, being 2.5 metres high, the six attica figures of the Liechtenstein CITY PALACE for the most part appear as if far away. But a few weeks ago they were restored in situ, and we had the privilege of viewing them during the restoration process - at the same time enjoying spectacular views. There follows a series of images.
Artworks on loan
The new Hong Kong Palace Museum is currently showcasing over 120 major artworks from the Princely Collections. In the context of the exhibition, we discuss with Dr Johann Kräftner, Director of the Princely Collections, the relevance of loans in general, upcoming exhibitions, and the impact of artworks being confiscated.
