MuseumsQuartier Vienna

MuseumsQuartier Vienna

Veech x Veech’s entry to this international competition proposed a cultural landmark at the entrance to Vienna’s MuseumsQuartier to increase its presence and visibility within the city.

In 2000, the 60,000sqm arts and culture complex MuseumsQuartier (MQ) opened in Vienna. A collection of arts museums connected only in name were isolated from the rest of the city behind the 400m-long façade of Fischer von Erlach’s 18th-century royal stables.

Veech x Veech proposed a series of pavilion-type structures that would effectively operate as the main entrance to the complex, as well as multiple secondary entrances puncturing this façade in several places and bringing activities from the various museums into the plaza to activate this space, as well as giving a public and recognisable futuristic face to the complex.
