The construction of the Stadtbahn was the city's largest infrastructure project around 1900. Otto Wagner (1841–1918), the pioneer of modern architecture, was appointed artistic director of the new mass transportation system, which still shapes Vienna’s cityscape to this day. It was his initiative to erect a pavilion solely for the use of Emperor Franz Joseph at Hietzing station. After extensive renovation and restoration works, the Imperial Court Pavilion at Hietzing is now open once again to visitors.
