Center of Excellence

1st prize in the open, two-phase realization competition.

Graz, 16th January 2018 – ATP CEO Christoph M. Achammer and Paul Ohnmacht, Head of Design Innsbruck, joined politicians and representatives of the WKO to present the winning entry at a press conference. Based on the open, two-phase realization competition organized by the Austrian Economic Chambers (WKO) the Center of Excellence will replace the majority of the outdated Wifi workshop buildings. Work should start in 2019.

The urban design solution for the Center of Excellence highlights its role as a new educational hotspot in Graz. Thanks to its self-confident yet respectful approach to its environment the building complex enjoys a positive symbiosis with the existing urban fabric. ATP is proposing a generous, richly diverse square at the heart of the WKO site that will confidently continue the clear spatial sequence that runs through the city and will connect all surrounding buildings, present and future. The result is a series of high quality meeting spaces that will especially appeal to young people.
