Ryuta Mizuuchi and architect Johann Moser, the winning project of the EU-wide, two-stage realization competition was announced today:
"Composing the Future" by BWM Designers & Architects and facts and fiction emerged as the winner of the competition with a spectacular design.
The Austrian Pavilion
Visitors at the Austrian Pavilion will be led through the medium of music from the past into the future, from the known into a contemporary Austria. "The common thread through the exhibition is a loop sculpture rising spectacularly into the sky and will be visible from afar. Up close, it proves to be an oversized construction of wooden slats screwed together," says Johann Moser, architect of the Austrian Pavilion.
The exhibition hall is divided into three areas: Relationships, People, Ideas. In a spectacular exhibition, the visitors finally compose the world of tomorrow together.
