Jugenstil

 One of the great things about learning a new language is the fact that you come to really understand words you already knew for quite a long time.Having studied architecture the term “Jugenstil”, as one aspect of Art Nouveu, was very much a subject of our Architecture history classes.As I learned recently Jugenstil means “Youth Style” , after the German magazine “Jugend”, which promoted it.Another common term for Viennese architecture in the Art Nouveu era, is the movement of “Secession”, which also is the name of the beautiful building in Karlsplatz.
