The Hollein Building
The architect, designer, artist and teacher Hans Hollein was born in Vienna in 1934. As a versatile design talent he is today one of the world's most distinguished architects.
In 1997 he was commissioned by the Dr.-Ludwig-Marxer Family Foundation to design the structure that is today known as the "Hollein Building".
The form of the building derives from a simple rectangular body that has been transformed into a dynamic, tensioned structural volume through a minor modification. This created a homogeneous building whose roof and façade are not separate elements, but which consist instead of the same stone and the same structure.
The coherence and plasticity of the structure is underscored by the contiguous façade made of verde andeer, which has in equal measure a sophisticated and robust effect.
