Vienna Museum Extension

 

The 1950’s building requires additional accommodation in a site that fronts Vienna’s Kaiser Platz and is architecturally suppliant to a famous Fischer Von Erlach church. The design makes much use of natural light : both overhead and gradated along the flanks of the museum spaces. By establishing a ‘hat’ condition  over both the existing structure and the terracing to the platz, the building avoids interference with the existing recreational area.
