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.
