 Vienna1900: Architecture
Vienna around 1900 is the seedbed for an architectural style that culminated in the functionalism of Adolf Loos and played a crucial role in the development of the language of architectural modernism and postmodernism in the twentieth century.
Modern architecture, as defined by Otto Wagner in his guidebook for students, was an extremely progressive program that responded to the demands of modern life and a functionalist acknowledgment of technical demands.
Modern Architecture appeared in 1896 and outlined an approach to design that would become synonymous with twentieth century practice.

 Library Paper: Architecture for Federated Portals
The federated portal architecture solves this problem by distributing power; that is, by building multiple, locally owned portals – not one centralized portal – and so increasing the speed at which design decisions can be made and at which portals can be developed.
Because a distributed architecture provides a shared structure, it is possible to build portals simultaneously for several departments without requiring the large up-front planning needed for a monolithic enterprise portal.
The federated architecture allows metadata to be distributed across a group of portals, allowing users of any one portal to seamlessly leverage the knowledge repositories of other portals in the federation.
