Multifunctional Service Center, Competition 1st prize
Monofunctional structures do not correspond to the architecture and the urban development of the 21st century.
Future urban development will mirror the complexity of people’s intellectual and material lives. This is why not only the media represent the urban culture of tomorrow, but architecture does too.
For us, a city must convey diversity and tension.
The Europaplatz center situated on the western edge of the old part of St. Pölten might act as an ideal counterbalance vis-à-vis the new government sector. Both areas, as centers of gravity, would turn into fields of crystallization triggering different developments.
