Arriola & Fiol wins 1st prize to redesign Wagramer Strasse in Vienna

Posted by afarquitectes in COMPETITIONS

Arriola & Fiol in a joint venture with EGKK landschaftsarchitektur, has won an international competition to redesign Wagramer Strasse in Vienna, Austria.

Wagramer Strasse is one of Vienna’s major thoroughfare connecting the historical center of the capital with the new Vienna. The design is a reinterpretation of the Danubian landscape, which will create a major new public space in the city and open up pedestrian links between the districts.

The layout of the design is in harmony with the structure of the agricultural fields of the Viennese plain, while reinforcing the great urban axe of the avenue as a new center for social and commercial activities in the district of Kagran.

Carmen Fiol, founding partner of the studio: ” We are delighted to be selected for a major project in Vienna, and we look forward to working with the city as the project develops.”
