begun 1698
Piarist church, Vienna

Hildebrandt's imaginative and yet formal style also characterizes his church buildings. He submitted plans for the Piaristenkirche in Vienna in 1698, but construction was begun only in 1716. Later, Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer became involved in the scheme.

The picture shows the nave.
