A 176-pound (80 kilograms) chunk of concrete cladding has fallen from year-old Library and Learning Centre at the University of Economics Vienna. This, unfortunately, isn’t the first time the Zaha Hadid-designed structure has malfunctioned; last year, an “assembly error” was deemed the reason why a large piece of fiberglass-reinforced concrete crashed down in front of the building’s entrance.
The incident happened late last Friday night. Thankfully, no one was injured in either of the occurrences. Contractors are expected to investigate the building. In the meantime, parts of the main entrance and surrounding pathways have been closed off to pedestrians.
