MED Campus, Vienna International Competition 3rd Prize in Austria by Wolfgang Tschapeller ZT GmbH

 
July 25th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

A two-stage competition for the Med Campus in Graz was held in 2009/2010. The task was to concentrate the hitherto widespread facilities of the Medical University near the Provincial Hospital. The project provided for lecture halls, seminar rooms, laboratories, research facilities and administrative offices. It comprised a gross floor area of about 100,000 square meters structured in a volume of approximately 300,000 cubic meters.

The building site is situated at a critical juncture between the city and the beginning (and at the same time disappearing) landscape. Volumes, spaces and paths were sculpted out of the legible remains of the landscape. Two robust groups of elements were set in a fragmented building landscape:
Towers raised from the area of the embankment.
A high, curved space 325 meters long and 30 meters high, bounded by two flanks of the same height.
The design seeks to perpetuate the fragile, tapering space of the valley in the buildings.
