On the way to the Majolika Haus and other houses that Otto Wagner built on the left Wienzeile, you will encounter the building of the Vienna Secession, which was built by Wagner’s student Joseph Maria Olbrich. The golden laurel leaf dome is located directly over the exhibition rooms of this Secession building. The Secession was the movement by fine artists and architects that through Art Nouveau wanted to break new ground beyond the stylistic imitations of the Ringstraße era.
