Vienna University of Economics Library and Learning Centre
Zaha Hadid Architects
Vienna, Austria

While most buildings remain in their place for decades, they can still express dynamic movement and fluidity. At least that is what the latest work one of the world's leading female architects, wants you to believe. With bundles of flowing curves around every corner, Hadid's new University of Economics Library and Learning Centre (LLC) in Vienna resembles a fancy stream-lined car rather than a traditional building. Situated at the center of a new university campus in Austria's capital, it is the biggest, tallest and most striking piece of architecture of the entire campus area.

DC Tower 1
Dominique Perrault
Vienna, Austria

French superstar architect Dominique Perrault is the man behind Vienna’s new landmark showcasing Perrault’s trademark use of big shapes and simple geometry. Named DC Tower 1 due to it’s location in Danube City and its status as one of a pair (the twin building remains on the drawing board) the building reaches a height of 250 meters and 60 floors making it the tallest skyscraper in Austria and a sign of Vienna's increasingly desperate ambition to re-shape Danube City.
