Dragon Bridge
Ljubljana, Slovenia


Part One




From http://www.visitljubljana.com/


The Dragon Bridge, adorned with famous dragon statues, appears in the most recognizable images of Ljubljana. If you haven't been photographed next to a Dragon Bridge dragon, you can hardly claim that you have visited Ljubljana. The four dragon statues, which look slightly terrifying and almost real (if, of course, you believe that dragons might be real), are a masterpiece which has been exciting imagination since the bridge was built.

The attraction of the dragons aside, the bridge is a unique creation considered to be an extraordinary piece of technical heritage and a superb example of Art Nouveau architecture, which flourished at the turn of the 20th century. Constructed between 1900 and 1901, it was Ljubljana's first reinforced concrete structure and one of the largest bridges of its kind to be built in Europe. At the time of its opening, it was called the Jubilee Bridge of Emperor Franz Joseph I. According to original designs, it was supposed to be adorned with winged lions instead of dragons. It was the first structure in Slovenia to be paved with asphalt. The construction plans for the bridge were prepared by Professor Josef Melan, a famous engineer specializing in reinforced concrete bridges and the father of the theory underlying static calculations for large suspension bridges.

The Dragon Bridge was given its Art Nouveau appearance by the Dalmatian architect Jurij Zaninović, who studied under the famous Viennese architect Otto Wagner, one of whose pupils was also Ljubljana's great architect Jože Plečnik. Zaninović designed the concrete slabs in which the reinforced concrete structure is clad, the balustrades, and the sheet-copper dragon statues. The bridge's original decorations also include the parapet lamps, once powered by gas.

The Dragon Bridge replaced an old wooden bridge called Butchers' Bridge, which had stood on its site from 1819. The municipal authorities decided on a modern design and reinforced concrete structure mainly for economy reasons as construction in reinforced concrete was far less expensive than construction in the then more common stone.

Kallina House
Zagreb - Croatia






From Wikipedia:

The Kallina House (Croatian: Kuća Kallina) is a historic residential building in Zagreb, Croatia. The house is located in the city centre on the corner of Masarykova and Gundulićeva streets and is regarded as "one of the finest examples of Secessionist-style street architecture in Zagreb."

The house was built between 1903 and 1904 for the wealthy industrialist Josip Kallina and was designed by the Croatian architect Vjekoslav Bastl for the Hönigsberg & Deutsch architecture bureau. Bastl had previously studied at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Vienna where he was influenced by the Austrian architect Otto Wagner, an early proponent of Art Nouveau (called Jugendstil in Austria-Hungary) and one of the founding members of the Vienna Secession art movement.

The three-story house was designed as a residential building, with the exception of the ground level which was intended to house shops. Bastl's design for a house entirely covered in decorative ceramic tiles was at the same time inspired by the Majolika Haus in Vienna (built by Wagner in 1898, itself covered in ceramic tiling) and a way of turning the building into a giant advertisement for Josip Kallina's ceramics company (all the tiles used for the house were produced by his factory). The building features decorative iron balconies overlooking the street intersection, depictions of floral and geometric motifs typical for the Art Nouveau style of the period, and a bat-shaped patterned motif around the first floor façade.

Gare de Metz-Ville, Metz

Built after the first German annexation of Metz, it's a part of the "germanic" Imperial District. The design is heavily eclectical.

Here is a link to a short, cheerful report (3.45 minutes) about the Art Nouveau architecture of Riga by Brussels TV. The Latvian capital has about 400-600 buildings in Art Nouveau style. The buildings in the video are mainly filmed in Albert street, this is also the location of the Riga Art Nouveau Museum.

One of the most impressive Art Nouveau buildings in Berlin at the Kurfürstendamm:






The building was designed by H. Toebelmann and H. Gross in 1905 and finished in 1909. The facade ornaments were modelled by scultor Rödel. Recently this part was well restored, even reconstructing the original wooden windows. The other part used to be equally decorated:


(source: Peter Haiko red. Die Architektur des XX Jahrhunderts. Zeitschrift für moderne Baukunst 1901-1914' (Wasmuth, Tübingen 1989) p. 136)

The building originally had spacious luxury apartments. In the 1920s it was turned into offices. In 1935 two-thirds of the facades had its stucco ornaments removed (like so many buildings in Berlin) and its facades modernized. In my opinion this building is the prime candidate to receive subsidy for an immaculate restoration to its former glory. This is how it looks currently:
