International Prize Winner Fasch&Fuchs architekten
Federal School Aspern, Fasch&Fuchs. architekten, Austrian
The work “Federal School Aspern” by the Viennese Fasch & Fuchs Architekten firm wins the 9th edition of the Prize. The project transposes in a coherent and functional way the needs dictated by the program which included the creation of an organized school on new educational concepts and open learning methods based on the relationships between several classes. The arrangement and overlap of the levels, the permeability of the interior spaces, the continuity between public spaces, teaching spaces and the garden give the building an inclusive and welcoming character. Transparency and lightness are the guiding principle inside and outside the school which, when illuminated from
the inside, reveals the steel supporting.
