1st prize in an anonymous, EU-wide invited developer competition
ATP Vienna was successful against seven competitors in the competition for the Technologiezentrum Seestadt. The competition jury evaluated the entries in terms of their urban design, architectural and functional solutions as well as energy efficiency, sustainability and cost-effectiveness.
Dario Travas, Head of Design at ATP Vienna, explained the concept underlying the winning project: "The urban design approach is the logical development of the basic idea of the exploded perimeter block which is set out in the masterplan."
The Seestadt in Vienna’s 22nd district is one of Europe’s largest urban design projects. ATP’s solution blends harmoniously into the sustainable urban design concept of Seestadt Aspern. The shoreline zone at the heart of the campus is the backbone of the higher-level open-space concept. Optimally lit, fan-shaped building blocks clearly define the space while providing an attractive appearance along Christine-Touillon Straße.
According to the competition jury, ATP’s urban design concept is characterized by “a precise, unruffled architecture which is in harmony with the proposed use. The clear organization of the building volume integrates the project into its surroundings. The floor plans are spatially simple, clear, well lit and easily divisible. Individual spaces can be reached easily and quickly. This also meets the requirement for the flexible use of the individual floors. At ground level, the generous entrance opens the comb-shaped floor to the campus. Operational courtyards provide an ideal solution towards the street. This functional permeability is one of the project’s very special qualities.”
