Department stores, once the „cathedrals of retail“, have become problematic urban zones due to the rapidly increasing volume of online retail. As an alternative to the monoliths that were mostly built in the 60s to 80s of the last century, new concepts with small-scale structures are needed.

The design seeks to create a transition between the area of small-scale detached houses to the north and the large-scale, high-rise development to the south, while combining these two typologies with the help of an esplanade that crosses the district from east to west.

An ensemble of three high-rise buildings has been completed on the basis of a competition for the development of a new district next to Vienna’s Central Station that was won by Delugan Meissl Associated Architects in 2015. The buildings are connected by a base that defines the edges of the plot and lends the external appearance of the quarter a decidedly urban tone.

Casa Invisibile
A flexible housing unit, which consists of a prefabricated wood structure designed for turnkey implementation at any designated site.

The renowned Austrian architects firm’s design “was governed by two motives: plural perspective and physiological effect. Along these lines, the entire building is a reference to the cinema-going experience as a game of light, space and movement. The white roof covering the building refers to cinematography and the façade reflects light in constantly changing conditions….EYE is the first major arts institution to make the leap over the IJ, and it’s here that the Institute will grow into an inspiring cultural meeting place.”

Two large-scale housing projects in Vienna were the first buildings designed and realized by the architects: the Beam, built in 1998 and the Mischek Tower, which had been completed two years later. During the last 21 years of existence, the studio Delugan Meissl Associated Architects realized numerous further projects, among them the Global Headquarter Sandoz of the Novartis Company (2003), Ray1, the often published house on a rooftop near Vienna’s city center, the City Lofts and the High Rise in the Wienerberg district.

Besides multiple successes in international competitions, DMAA’ contribution to the 2006 Architecture Biennale in Venice, as well as to the first Architecture Biennal in China – with an apartment realized in Phoenix City of Bejing – attracted high attention.

Further achievements on national as well as international level include many social housing projects or cultural buildings such as the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart (completion in 2008), the EYE Film Institute Netherlands (opening end of 2011) or the Festival Hall in Erl, which was completed at the end of 2012.


The exhibition “state of flux” showed built and unbuilt projects and illustrated at the same time the manifold roles taken on by the younger generation of architects.
