A Floral Art Nouveau Masterpiece

On April 4, 1969 architect Alois Ludwig died. 

One of his works is the floral design on the Majolikahaus in Vienna - a gem for gardeners and lovers of Art Nouveau.  

A private residential building close to Naschmarkt, Ludwig adorned the front of the building with majolica tiles creating an intricate floral motif. It is an incredible sight and worth viewing whilst in Vienna, it is a few minutes walk from Kettenbrückengasse U-Bahn station.
