    SHARE YOUR IDEAS - CROSS FERTILIZATION - INSTITUT FÜR GEBÄUDE UND ENERGIE

     

    Wir laden alle Studenten der Architekturfakultät ein, an unserer Veranstaltung "CROSS FERTILIZATION" teilzunehmen. In der Tradition des Instituts für Gebäude und Energie werden unsere Jahresthemen, dieses Jahr "Domed City - Interior Urbanism", in all unseren Lehrveranstaltungen mit unterschiedlichen Schwerpunkten vertieft. Ziel dieses Treffens ist, den Studenten eine Überblick über die vielfältigen Ansätze der Behandlung des Jahresthemas zu geben. Parallel wird das Jahresthema ebenso am Department für Energy Design an der Universität für Angewandte Kunst behandelt, welches an der Veranstaltung ebenso teilnehmen wird. Durch den direkten Austausch der konzeptuellen Schwerpunkte eröffnet sich die Möglichkeit, die individuellen Positionen der studentischen Arbeiten zu stärken und zu erweitern.

    Das Thema „Licht“ ist zukunftsweisend für die Entwicklung unserer Gesellschaft.

    Die Revolutionen der elektrischen Lichttechnik ermöglichen auch einen verantwortungsvollen Umgang mit natürlichen Ressourcen. Begleitend zur Ausstellung wird sich eine internationale Tagung mit dem Thema Licht in der Kulturgeschichte und Kunst, Biologie, Architektur und Technik auseinandersetzen. Leitende Frage ist die „Lichtverschmutzung“. Wie lässt sich ökologisch sinnvoll, ökonomisch effizient und ästhetisch überzeugend mit beleuchteter Umwelt umgehen?

    Competition: Turm mit Taille Competition

    Award: First Prize

    Architects: http://www.mvrdv.nl/MVRDV

    Location: Gasometers of Vienna, Guglgasse 6, 1110 Wien, Austria

    Structural Engineer: Bollinger + Grohmann Ingenieure Wien

    Sustainability Consultant: Energy Design Cody Consulting

    Area: 35680.0 sqm

    Year: 2016

    Photographs: MVRDV

     

     

     

    MVRDV has been announced as winner of a two-stage, BAI-backed competition for a new "spatially-flexible" tower with a twisting "hourglass figure" near Vienna's world famous Gasometers. The 110-meter "Turm mit Taille" (Tower with Waist) was shaped to minimize the effect of the building's shadow cast onto neighboring buildings and an adjacent metro station.

     

    "The site for the tower is directly adjacent to a metro station, and building regulations initially restricted allowable construction to a 75-meter-high volume, which should be trapezoidal in plan," stated Rotterdam-based practice in a press release. "MVRDV proposed a more compact and efficient square layout, which resulted in a taller volume to make up for the reduced footprint. The solution was to parametrically shape the lower 10 floors of the building into a twist, to minimize the structure's shadow cast onto the neighboring facades to only two hours a day."

     

    "Through this operation, an elegant, hourglass figure emerged that responds to its surroundings by opening up views towards the Gasometers and the rest of the city. The design for the plaza around the tower becomes like a gigantic sundial, on which the shadow of the building delineates the passing of time."

     

    The building will provide 35,680-square-meters of flexible space which can accommodate both offices and housing, as well as retail spaces, restaurants, cafes and parking.

     

    Construction envisioned to start in 2016.

  • ABOUT

    Against the predominant background of global warming, rapidly diminishing energy resources, exponential population growth, increasing geopolitical instabilities resulting from the uncertainty of the future energy supply situation together with the fact that buildings are responsible for at least 40% of the world's energy consumption, good architecture is not possible without a good energy concept. Buildings represent a large part of what is probably one of the biggest problems of our society - namely the fair distribution of the resources available to us. Architecture can therefore be a major part of the solution. Never before has this discipline been offered a comparable opportunity to play such a central role in the history of mankind. Good architecture is always a concrete expression of the cultural values, priorities and hopes of a society. But now it can also provide the physical answer to this existential challenge. By definition, sustainable development cannot be accompanied by a simultaneous loss of architectural quality in our built environment. A building with little architectural quality and a good energy concept therefore makes no real contribution to a sustainable future. Research and teaching at the IGE focuses on maximizing the energy performance of buildings and cities and developing architectural and urban design projects that are inherently highly energy efficient by optimizing their shape and structure. 

  • ABOUT

    Architecture is not only responsible for a large proportion of the world's energy consumption - architecture is energy. A line on paper that represents an architectural intention often implies decades or centuries of associated energy and material flows. At the Institute for Buildings and Energy (IGE),  energy-efficient architecture is understood as a triad of minimized energy consumption, optimal indoor climate and excellent spatial qualities - both at the urban and individual building level.

     

    The experience and the accumulated know-how from the practice of the consulting firm Energy Design Cody through collaborations with architectural offices such as Coop Himmelb(l)au, OMA, Miralles Tagliabue, Delugan Meissl, MVRDV, to name but a few, flow back into basic research but also into the teaching activities at the institute via lectures and impulse lectures, so that students benefit directly from this experience and knowledge.

     

    Since 2010, the concept has been to prepare a special topic of focus for the coming academic year with the aim of focussing attention in teaching and research on a specific topic for a limited period of time and to exploit synergies between the various activities. At the end of the year, the results of the teaching and research activities are summarized in a brochure and presented to all members of the faculty together with the chosen topic for the coming academic year.
