A new university complex was built for the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU) at the site Messe-S√ľdportalstrasse in the immediate vicinity of the underground railway line U2 and the recreation area of the Prater.

The university complex was planned as campus with free communication, traffic and green areas consisting of six individual built up areas which represent the pioneering role of the WU in the architectural, economical and ecological respect. This goes along with a qualitative and quantitative improvement of the service and the framework conditions for students and researchers.

The six built up areas with a total of approx. 160,000 m² gross floor area consist of the centrally located library & learning centre, the lecture centre as well as additional four areas which include the departments and the executive academy. These areas are made accessible by the open spaces above ground. In addition the buildings are connected via the subterranean garage with the exception of the executive academy.
