DESCRIPTION – Vienna – University of Economics and Business and Viertel Zwei
The new University of Economics and Business on the outskirts of the Vienna Prater was planned by BUSarchitektur and by inter-national star architects and put into operation in 2013. It is not without reason that the new university campus is called an architecture park: in addition to the Library and Learning Center designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, there are five institutes and lecture hall buildings by Atelier Hitoshi Abe/Sendai, CRABstudio/London, Estudio Carmen Pinós/Barcelona, NO.MAD Arquitectos/Madrid and BUSarchitektur/Vienna. The open area is designed as an open urban space with coffee shops and small shops, which offers around 25.000 students and 1.500 university staff a pleasant atmosphere for their everyday life. “Viertel Zwei” is an area located in the immediate vicinity, a new urban quarter with residential use and offices. High-quality architecture (including buildings by Henke Schreieck Architects, Martin Kohlbauer, Atelier Thomas Pucher, Chaix & Morel et Associés, Zechner & Zechner) and high-quality – car-free – urban spaces are the characteristics of this very successful new district.
The itinerary goes through the campus and the individual university buildings, followed by a tour of the residential and office buildings in Viertel Zwei.
