Atzgersdorf

With the beginning of industrialization, the population of Atzgersdorf grew strongly and after the Second World War, it became the center of heavy industry. The cityscape changed significantly within a few decades. Many of the characteristic single-story workers’ houses gave way to large-scale residential developments. To this day, there are still a few small houses, shops, workshops, factories and building material stores, most of which were built in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Over time, a variety of architecture developed in the midst of these historic buildings: extensive residential parks, kindergartens, schools, cycle paths, parks, supermarkets and restaurants. All are products that reflect the possibilities and needs of their time, creating flowing combinations of old and new, concrete and nature, ugliness and beauty.
