MENDIGER BASALT AJ ENQUIRY NO: 201 Mendiger Basalt Lava was used to build Ortner and Ortner's MUMOK modern art museum in Vienna - for the 100mm-thick facade, the curved roof, and the inside walls. The entrance hall is fully lined with Basalt slabs. It is a homage to this volcanic material, chosen for its character and resilience.
