Innsbruck, Tyrol, Austria
The New Seminary
—Universitätsstrasse 2 —
As the Court Church was being constructed (1553-63) according to plans of Nicholas Andrea Crivelli Turing the Younger (died 1558), and Marco della Bolia, this building was designed and built as a seminary for choral singers. From 1562 to 1784-85 it served as a Franciscan seminary, as attested to by its well-preserved Renaissance-style cloisters. After 1785 it was mainly as a school. Since 1929, it has been the home of the Tyrolean Folk Art Museum. The northern- and forwards part of the east wing was rebuilt in the Baroque style in 1719 by Georg Anton Gumpp.
