FRENCH EMBASSY PALACE VIENNA

 

 

One of the most interesting buildings along Schwarzenbergplatz is the home of the French Embassy, built between 1904 and 1912 to plans by the French architect Georges Chedanne, who is better known for his design of the Galeries Lafayette in Paris.

The building, designed in Art Nouveau, was unlike anything the Viennese had

 

 

 

 ever seen and they likened it to an Oriental building, which led to the rumor that the French had accidentally used the design for the embassy in Istanbul.

 

The splendid concert series of the Embassy has invited many important artists to perform - as e.g. Helmut Deutsch, members of the Viennese Philharmoniker, Natalie Dessay, etc...
