From the 3 central sections new exhibit spaces frame new public spaces along the Danube.
1/6

Solution

The 3 central elements are floated down stream to their new location. Erected on new pylons the steel frames are clad in translucent Teflon coated fabric adding protection from the external environment. Inside the main frame a series of climate controlled (top lit) rooms provide space for permanent and temporary exhibits that celebrate the intersection of Art, Science and Technology. Supporting this activity is a new urban space capable of holding a number of outdoor and exhibition events.

What is the name of your concept?

Linz Triplex

Which of the three suggested areas are you choosing for your concept? (the Donaulände public park, the port area or the mouth of Traun River)?

The Port Area

What is the public function of your concept?

The proposal provides for a new Public Urban Space. This is access using new bridges from the central masterplan. The 3 bridge elements are clad in translucent Teflon coated fabric sealing them from the external environment.

How are the parts of the old railway bridge visible in your concept?

The three main spans are unaltered and used as the core structure for a Teflon covering. These are visible on accessing the structure from all sides and through the translucent covering. At night the three elements become lanterns at night.
