Studio díazmoreno garcíagrinda dealt with the Westbahnhof area as part of the architectural design course in the 2022/2023 academic year.
The development of the program and the processing during the two semesters with nuanced approaches and goals took place in coordination and collaboration with the Vienna City Planning Department. The project was also accompanied by numerous external experts who could bring in different perspectives onto the site.
The variety of different aspects of this area have already played a central role in the methodological approach.
The task was not primarily issued with the aim of developing a quasi-finished project.
Rather, the students should work on developing a kind of urban, architectural language for the area under the guidance and support of the professors and the studio team.
This framework is reflected in the fact that the project topic is entitled as: “A Glossary of Possible Urban Futures for Westbahnhof”.
Similar to the sequence of terms in a dictionary, the different aspects were each developed under a word to be defined.
The exhibition in the Stadtraum Mitte 15 now brings an overall view of this complexity in a compressed way that has been specially tailored to this space.
A small publication will also be published about the work.
