A House Attack on the Largest Art Museum in Central Vienna, Austria

Seems like a hut fallen from the sky and bombarded into the museum, this cottage-sized house in an insecure position on the side of Museum Moderner Kunst (MUMOK)

Seems like a hut fallen from the sky and bombarded into the museum, this cottage-sized house in an insecure position on the side of Museum Moderner Kunst (MUMOK) large grey-coloured building is actually the quirkiest and bizarre representations of contemporary art by Austrian artist Erwin Wurm. The artist collaborated with the museum for a publicity stunt in the form of architecture.

Facade design ideas-Museum Moderner Kunst

House Attack was an architectural installation created in central Vienna, Austria. And the construction of this odd building was completed in 2006. For this amazing architecture, a large wedge-shaped gap was created in the terrace, and then the house was carefully placed into that position with the help of a crane.

 The hut has a red roof, window frames, and is equipped with a TV antenna. Erwin is recognized as the most successful contemporary artist, who says that anything can become sculpture: written, actions or drawn instructions or even a thought.

House attack is the first modern artwork you will see when visiting the museum. However, inside the museum, you can feast your eyes on the extensive collection of almost 7000 modern and contemporary artworks.

Known as the largest art museum in Austria, MUMOK has some wide anthology of international artworks, from Cubism, Futurism, Surrealism and classical modernity to the art movements of the ’60s and ’70s. The unusual and fascinating facade of the building has become famous worldwide.
