The new building for the Future Art Lab will complete the development of this special campus, which is reminiscent of Anglo-American models and is unique for Vienna. On account of this, and due also to it location at a prominent position, this building has a special importance, which makes it possible to especially accentuate the canon of the buildings on the campus at this point.
This free-standing, embedded building which can very much be understood as an apparatus, accommodates the apartments of electro acoustics, composing, film and television and those for keyboard instruments.
The building is seen as a pavilion which makes a gesture of opening towards the middle of the university and which can also respond to urban references.
