"Sanatorium" is a design for a reconstruction of the abandoned nuclear power plant in Zwentendorf to serve a radically different new purpose as a sanatorium for rheumatic diseases. The precisely controlled spatial and climatic environment traditionally provided for diseased bodies is replaced by numerous varying milieus. In place of a precise organization of bodies under specific beneficial conditions, "Sanatorium" offers heterogeneous spatial concepts. Heaviness and lightness, exposure and enclosure, hygiene and filth, efficiency and extravagance are present in equal measure and come together to create spatial sequences. The disciplined movement of bodies in a space is averted and the modern approach to creating therapeutic spaces is superseded.

Christian Tonko was born in Feldkirch, Austria in 1984. He studied architecture at the Institute for Art and Architecture (IKA) of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and received his diploma in 2010.
