The Media Center building completes the south side of the MDW campus - the University of Music and Performing Arts Wien.
The new building employs a type of traditional courtyard building (Hof) however in a contemporary interpretation.
The building is conceived like a chest: the minor spaces surround major rooms, sophisticated and precious instruments dedicated to music production. These rooms, placed inside the courtyard, follow each other in a spiral motion. The sequence ends with the library, illuminated by skylights.
