Originally built in the 1960s, the office building, rented entirely by DORDA, is located at the junction of the Universitätsring, the old city walls and the Biedermeier buildings near the Mölkerbastei, opposite of the University of Vienna.
The conference zone on the 6th floor of the 7-storey building was completely redesigned in 2003 and now offers a spectacular view from the city hall to the Kahlenberg thanks to a continuous floor-to-ceiling glass facade.
The interior design of marble and carpet, upholstered wall and the different textures of the materials result in a generous, harmonious overall impression and reflect modern work structures.
The conference zone has the most modern technical and multimedia facilities and the necessary technical connections for the film industry.
Originally, the Furniture Museum Vienna was the furniture warehouse of the Habsburgs. Today, with 165,000 objects, it represents one of the largest furniture collections in the world. Furniture culture from over three centuries is on display. The collection ranges from the presentation of imperial furniture to a wide variety of furnishing styles such as Biedermeier, Historicism and Viennese Modernism to contemporary furniture design. Changing special exhibitions are devoted in particular to the architecture, design and furniture of the 20th century.
The four former gas tanks built up in 1896 were rebuilt while a great construction from 1999 till 2001. The Gasometers have developed a city in the city-character, with over 800 apartments, a hall of residence, a music hall (capacity 2000–3000 people), shops and further more. Given the fact that the huge Gasometers are seen from afar, they are known as Simmering's landmark.
The former imperial residence is testament to the interplay between the historical and the modern. The halls where monarchs once held court now host up to 300 events per year. A total of 35 multi-purpose rooms with capacities of between 50 and 4,900 people are available. The unusual glass architecture of the Hofburg Galerie and the festive halls offer a unique blend of imperial atmosphere and state-of-the-art technology.

The first exhibition of the new Jewish Museum Vienna opened on 7 March 1990 in temporary premises at the Jewish Community offices in Seitenstettengasse. A significant part of the exhibition was made up of the Judaica collection by Max Berger that had been recently acquired from the city of Vienna. In 1992 the Museum was able to transfer to its present home in Palais Eskeles at Dorotheergasse 11. After renovation and adaption of this historical building, the Museum was reopened in 1993. The library in the Jewish Community offices has been open to the public since 1994. Alterations were carried out to Palais Eskeles in 1995-96 to adapt it to the needs of a modern museum. At this time the permanent exhibition, Installation of Memory in the auditorium, the holograms and the Viewable Storage Area were installed. Since 1998 the archive with its growing collection of material relating to the history of Jewish Vienna has also been open to the public. On 25 October 2000 a branch of the Jewish Museum Vienna was opened on Judenplatz at the same time as the unveiling of the memorial to the 65,000 Austrian Jews exterminated by the Nazis designed by the British artist Rachel Whiteread and erected at the instigation of Simon Wiesenthal.
Kunsthalle Wien is dedicated to art and its relations to social change. It produces exhibitions, researches art practices, and supports local and international artists. It seeks to ground its knowledge of international contemporary art in and for Vienna, and advocates for the usefulness of artistic thinking in the wider public sphere.
Kunsthalle Wien, as an urban institution, presents national and international contemporary art at both its locations at Museumsquartier and Karlsplatz. Designed by the architect duo Ortner & Ortner the Winterreithalle (winter riding arena) of the Hofstallungen (Imperial Mews) at Museumsquartier was extended by a functional annex which combines the historic building with contemporary architecture. Two halls with different interior profiles provide space for exhibitions of contemporary art. At Karlsplatz this glass pavilion designed by Adolf Krischanitz, is the second location of Kunsthalle Wien and presents a wide-ranging program of exhibitions and events.
The "MQ Libelle" is located on the rooftop of the Leopold Museum, built as an extension to the MuseumsQuartier. The terrace is free to access for the public and hosts an iconic dragon-fly design building, planed by architect Laurids Ortner, providing one of the most beautiful views on Vienna City.
Complementary to the architecture, permanent artworks were implemented: "veiled" by Eva Schlegel spreads over the glass hull of the "MQ Libelle" and on the terrace itself the installation "Lichtkreise" ("light circles") by Brigitte Kowanz illuminates the terrace itself.
