What are you talking about? You can add additional floors in a way that doesn't completely ruin the look of a building. The examples in Vienna are absolutely brutal and ugly as sin.

Here's a positive example from Berlin:



Here's an even better example from Munich:



Yes, the upper most floor is actually new!

By the way, how come you call it Wilhelminian? That's what it is called in Germany because Emperor Wilhelm ruled there. You had your own Habsburg rulers though. Shouldn't it be called Franz Josephian or something like that?

Thats your opinion! Don´t you think that are also ugly (or call it modern) additions in berlin or munich? 20,000 buildings from the Gründerzeit era (is it okay?) making Vienna unrivaled in the German-speaking area. There is no point to argue all the time. Shit, ulgy, wtf? I will post some classical examples in the future...

It's just a shame how those awful, tumour-like "roof extensions" keep appearing on top of all the buildings.

I agree, if the modernist tumour growth on top of Vienna won't stop it will soon not be so beautiful anymore.
