Our ski jump on Bergisel mountains contains ski ramp and sports facilities,  public spaces, including a tower-top café and viewing terrace. Rising to a height of almost 50m the structure’s distinctive form (part tower/part bridge) and silhouette extends the topography of the ski slopes below into the alpine sky above.

In December 1999 we won an international competition to design a new ski jump on the Bergisel Mountain in Innsbruck.

Space for Prayer in Shiga, Japan by FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects

This little place of worship is planned in a room in a building which is in an area that is currently under development. In the bible, you can find lots about the contrast of darkness and light. For example, “light shines in darkness” “God created light. God separates light and darkness” I wanted to create a space of prayer where inspired by words of the bible.
