Concrete with Character: The University of Vienna
Designed by Zaha Hadid – The University of Vienna’s Library and Learning Centre is dominated by fibreC and fibreC 3D elements & forms.
The Library & Learning Centre rises as a polygonal block from the heart of the University Campus. The interior of the LLC is informed by the external landscape of the masterplan which maps out the different levels. The straight lines of the building’s exterior separate as they move inward, becoming curvilinear & fluid to generate a free-formed interior canyon that serves as the principal public plaza of the centre, as well as generating corridors & bridges ensuring smooth transitions between different levels.
