Design of a new training center for the AAG staff to bundle training activities at the Vienna Aviation Campus. The concept brings together the two poles heaven and earth. The glazed façade surfaces look like pixilated images of heaven, the area in front of the building paved with fields of wood and plants cites pixilated aerial images of landscape. Inside training and office functions surround an open atrium connecting all four floors. The light-flooded building and the vertical openness are the basis for a team comprehensive cooperation.
