Cultural and Educational Buildings
GS_architekten, Perler und Scheurer Architekten – Ferry Porsche Congress Center Zell am See, 2006/2007, Austria
The tiered structure of the multi-purpose events centre creates an architectural link between the elevated heart of the old town and the pedestrian zone lower down near the station. The purist new building, with its generous areas of open space, blends in seamlessly with the town’s highly traditional architecture.

Overall technical and artistic direction: Jens Giesecke und Gerold Perler
Project team: Margarita Gomez Salas de Schetter, Thomas Hölker, Anne Lütkenhues, Gonzalo Navarro, Thomas Richter, Kirsten Salecker, Susann Selkmann, Frank Sudfeld, Carolina Vilar
Haberland Architekten – Extension to the Cantonal Schools Rychenberg and Im Lee, Winterthur, 2004–2007
The extension to the schoolhouses is located on a site facing the main building and the great hall of the Rychenberg cantonal school. This location presents a challenge both in terms of topography and of thelisted status of the original buildings. The elongated new building, consisting of a cube on a pedestal, combines with the existing architectural ensemble to create a landmark that is modern yet unobtrusive.
Architect: Jost Haberland
Project team: Doris Hönig (Projektleitung), Nina Gribat, Andreas Lokitek, Stephanie Dreyfuss, Boris Buzek
rheinflügel – Kunsthaus Zug mobil, 2002, Switzerland
This mini-museum must surely be the only transportable exhibition space of its kind in the world: a special container used for artistic and sociocultural projects in all sorts of locations. The "Friends of Kunsthaus Zug" foundation, which commissioned this travelling annex to their museum, wanted "an ambassador of the Kunsthaus to bring contemporary art to the audience".
Architects: Christian Heuchel, Tilmann Klein
KUEHN MALVEZZI – Lauder Business School, Vienna, 2004
The international business school and college goes back to an initiative launched by former US ambassador Ronald S. Lauder and Michael Häupl, Mayor of Vienna. With a new pavilion and redesign – in line with generally accepted conservation practice – of a partially baroque palace complex, the architects created a generously proportioned, elegant campus.
Architects: Johannes Kuehn, Wilfried Kuehn, Simona Malvezzi
Project team: Karin Fendt (Projektleitung), Lilli Pschill, Thomas Güthler, Francesca Bocchini, Katharina Urban
