LUNCH ATOP

Nordbergstraße 15, 1090 Vienna
November 2016–2018

Lunch Atop, on a Viennese skyscraper in Vienna’s 9th district, is a translation of an iconic image from the heyday of skyscraper construction in New York and refers to a photograph of a group of workers sitting on an I-beam at a dizzying height during their lunch break.

Since the beginning of November, an eighteen-metre-long I-beam has been protruding out over the roofs of Vienna – nearby the Franz Josef railway station – into the road space. Five figures are seen sitting – completely relaxed – on the girder.

On the one hand, the sculpture Lunch Atop acts as a statement and landmark, but also pays homage to construction workers.
