Music Gymnasium Salzburg Proposal / LETH & GORI

Courtesy of

LETH & GORI was recently awarded the third prize in the open international competition with their proposal for an extension to Music Gymnasium . Their design creates a new extension to the school without stealing space or light from the existing densely built site which is done by digging out the northern part of the site and inserting the extension as a one storey building with courtyards and skylights. Furthermore, the roof of the building becomes a new playful urban landscape for the students. More images and architects’ description after the break.

The design of the two high-rise towers for the Donau-City in by Dominique Perrault Architecture represents the concluding phase of a development extending over several decades: on what was originally a municipal rubbish tip the UNO-City was erected (1973–1979), tentative plans to hold the 1995 Vienna-Budapest EXPO here were soon abandoned, as a result architects Krischanitz and Neumann (commissioned by WED AG) produced an urban design masterplan for the area in 1992. The outcome is an entirely new urban district with a diverse range of functions. More images and architects’ description after the break.

University of Applied Arts Extension Proposal / Wolfgang Tschapeller

Courtesy of

Wolfgang Tschapeller shared with us their first prize winning proposal for the extension of the University of Applied Arts in . The removal of stair and elevator cores displays a pure serial structure. What remains are solely col-umns and slabs, ready for multiple functional readings. The broadway is not only a means of circulation, it is the platform where members and knowledge of the 17 different studios meet. It is the informal marketplace for cross disciplinary projects.More images and architects’ description after the break.
