[wu:nu:] Allotment City


Barbara Weber

While investigating on the current building structure of the university of economics in Vienna (WU) the students in the ESC-studio tried to challenge it on 4 major issues of architecture being access, roof surfaces, inhabitation as well as façade.
Based on these assignments a catalogue of possibilities was created, offering a basis upon which a broader discussion can take place.

The presented projects examine the structure focusing on reconnection, perforation, layering and orientation. Furthermore the quality of the existing is increased through the introduction or recurrence of natural light as well as the reorganization of space by differing privacy zones.
