The Constant Innovation of the Modern and Postmodern Architecture
There are many other significant buildings, that were created in the 20th century in Salzburg. In the 1960s Clemens Holzmeister design the Großes Festspielhaus built into the side of the Mönchsberg mountain, which is one of the world’s largest operas. A scene of The Sound of Music was shot here. He reinterpreted the clarity of local architectural traditions, which he used in and outside of Europe; he was so renown, he was even commissioned to build the Turkish Parliament too!
Salzburg’s historic architecture in the old town is so significant that it is listed as part of the UNESCO World Heritage. This status makes it harder for contemporary architecture projects to happen in the heart of the town, but there are some exceptions, such as the simplistic Mozarteum University of Salzburg. By Salzburg’s airport is an one-of-its-kind organic steel and glass structure; the Hangar-7, owned by Red Bull. Thanks to the transparent walls, visitors can enjoy a panorama view of the Alps. It houses a collection of historic airplanes, helicopters and racing cars, that can be viewed by the public. An unique construction is the modern "Makartsteg" pedestrian bridge in the heart of the town, which is covered by locks left by visitors of the city.
