Bundesamtsgebäude#

Bundesamtsgebaeude (Federal office buildings): Since the Federal Chancellery and the federal ministries require more and more space, 3 new federal office buildings have been built since the 1980s: 1) Ballhausplatz 3/Minoritenplatz 9, in the first district of Vienna, built from 1982 to 1986 to plans by A. Marchart, R. Moebius & Partners using stylistic elements used in buildings by Otto Wagner. The building, which stands on the site of the former "Ballhaus" (ball gaming hall), demolished in 1903, houses offices of the Federal Chancellery, the Federal Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the Federal Ministry of the Interior. 2) Radetzkystrasse 3, in the third district of Vienna, built from 1981 to 1986 to a design by P. Czernin with a remarkable façade. 3) Lichtenwerderplatz 5, in the ninth district of Vienna, built from 1986 to 1989 as part of the superstructure of the Franz-Joseph railway station to designs by K. Hlaweniczka and P. Czernin (reinforced concrete skeleton construction with a façade attached to the load-bearing system), used by the Road Traffic Licensing Department, the Police Headquarters and the Federal Ministry of the Interior.
