Sightseeing in Vienna: the best university of economics

Zaha Hadid, Peter Cook, Hitoshi Abe - the bestArchitects of the world have created a new campus for the largest university of economics and business in Europe. The admiration of the campus and the surprise of its construction - from our architectural tour of Vienna The architecture of Vienna is experiencing a real upsurge: the highest building in Austria has been erected, a curved residential tower in a complex of reconstructed gas meters has been built, a stunning central railway station has been created ... Vienna aims to be forever young, dynamic , Bright! The atmosphere of the city under construction and transforming is very inspiring, therefore Austria was chosen for the next architectural excursion. The universities of Austria, which have a highRanked internationally, attract thousands of students, revitalizing the city of frozen music. For example, the Vienna University of Economics is the largest university in Europe engaged in training specialists in business and economics. In the conditions of an ever increasing number of entrants, a new campus was built. It was this object in Vienna that was especiallyIs interesting because of the concentration of buildings executed according to the projects of world-class architects. For example, there is a library and a training center for Zaha Hadid. Her works are included in the program of architectural excursions Roomble - this is our "visiting card". The new campus of the Vienna University of Economics The total area of ​​the WU (Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien) campus is about 100,000 square meters: 35,000 meters are buildings, the rest is a public open space. The cost of construction of the whole project was 492 million euros. In addition to audiences, libraries and offices,The infrastructure of the complex has a restaurant, a bakery, a supermarket, book stores, a kindergarten and a sports center. The complex is designed by leading architectural bureaus of the world, taking into account all the needs for successful training and work, and is embodied in the technologies of energy-efficient buildings Green Building. The Executive College, designed by an architectural firm from Madrid NO.MAD Arquitectos, is intended for the process of postgraduate education. The facade is ventilated, made of glass and aluminum. Sky and nature are reflected in it, which ideally integrates the building into the environment. From the upper floors you can see the stunning panorama of Vienna and the nearby Prater. In the interior design, the principle ofMonomaterialism: aluminum and glass in the decoration of the floor, walls, lighting. Concrete is used as the base finishing material, which is perceived ambiguously: yes, this solution meets the latest design trends, but it is emotionally difficult to work in a "concrete box". TC / D1 The building of the training center, designedViennese architects from BUSarchitektur ZT GmbH, designed for 5,000 students. Among them, the name of the building Rusty (rusty) is popular - for the decoration of the facade with Corten sheets, which are also used in interior design. Interesting is the glass insert that connects the sections: Conceptually it is a form break, functionally - natural lighting. Designers took an unusual solution to the problem of light protection, using not blinds, but shutters with a very dense mesh. In addition to classrooms, the building is locatedAuditorium, cafe, the walls of which are light boxes with adjustable intensity of illumination, and the audience in the atrium with the roof in operation is a free space equipped with tables for work. Noteworthy are several levels connected by ramps, and zoning by partitions for the individualization of space. D2 and the student center Four-story building D2From Atelier Hitoshi Abe from Japan consists of two sections, has a complex shape and a floor wavy bend with a facade consisting of thin layers. Dynamics and graphics are emphasized by the alternation of materials. The building houses a research institute with large auditoriums, a self-government center for Austrian students, a business library, a sports center and a supermarket. D3 and administration, the author of the project - Peter CookThe architectural firm is CRABstudio, London. The authors made a bold and ambiguous decision - to finish the facade with rough rough boards. They have a sun protection function and give the building an unusual, dynamic look. It looks very impressive, but it raises controversy among professionals about the ease of operation. Building D3 has a complex structure: passages, niches, terraces, atriums, open space with seating designed to look out over the adjacent green Prater. The AD building is a straight line in the middle of the campus. On the first floors of both buildings the facades were closed andMinimized window openings - except for a library, a conference hall and a patisserie, which are completely glazed. The complex has three divisions, four research institutes, and also houses the WU. In we wrote about our admiration for landscapeThe design of Vienna, its thoroughness and unity with architecture. And this is especially evident in the design of the new campus: the architects not only designed the buildings, but also took care of creating a cozy atmosphere in the territory. On the example of the landscape ensemble created by Peter Cook's bureau, it can be seen that the plants were selected for this geographical area, the seasonality was taken into account and the feeling of a natural summer landscape was created, which contributes to rest and nicely contrasts with the appointment of the campus. D4 and D5 Facade design and building layout D4,Designed by another bureau from Spain - Estudio Carme Pinós S.L., are caused by the need to create small rooms, only about six square meters, for individual work or groups of several people. Observed and the requirement for each audience to provide for two windows, they are located at different heights. So it looked like Tetris. Even the interior design is geometric - both in layout and design. The sun protection problem is solved here with sliding aluminum blinds, which also give a variety of facade depending on the opening. Department of Strategy and Innovation, DepartmentDemographics WU, Austrian Academy of Sciences, student hostels - all of them are housed in the building D5, embodied by the architectural firm Holzer Kobler Architekturen and Freimüller Söllinger from Berlin. The construction of this building was completed last, the building began to function in 2015. Zaha Hadid Library and Training Center The desire to visit the University of Vienna appearedThanks to the existence in the complex of the building, created by the team of Zaha Hadid Architects. Previously, we had the pleasure of admiring her works during and in. Behind Vienna with its stunningly beautiful librarySoon followed by New York - we want to carefully study each ingenious creation of the authorship of this architectural studio. Futuristic architecture attracts attention with its originality, making the library building, perhaps, the most unusual of all that we have seen. A part of the building with white lining is used by administrative and service departments, and in the black segment - working areas for students. The glazed facade of the console is called a monitor. The interior space is very laconic and convenient. Everything is foreseen, to the smallest detail. Functional, simple solutions for the organization of space for leisure were used. All the equipment, up to the turnstiles - according to the design of Zaha. The two parts of the building have a glass junction. The main entrance is oriented to the central square of the town WU and is marked with a console roof. Inside, visitors enter a spacious atrium, the elements of which are perceived as a single whole - some forms smoothly flow into others, underscored and at the same time combined in black and white graphics, for example a contrasting strip from the entrance through the reception area and turnstiles in the hall to the elevators. An accessible environment has been developed: For visitors with disabilities, ramps are provided on all floors, in contrast to the building of Peter Cook, but here they have flatly refused parks for bicycles. Each of the buildings of WU is amazing with itsSpecial characteristics and options for architectural solutions. The new campus of the Vienna University of Economics and Business not only increased the area of ​​the institution, but also became an object of world-scale architecture, which is mandatory for visiting the list of sights of Vienna. The editors are grateful for the help in organizing the trip of Konstantin Isakov (), as well as the company Neue Wiener Werkstätte.
