Every year in May a Life Ball, whose net profit goes to Aids research and Aids support, is organized in Vienna. In 2011 a wing structure modelled on the artistic elements of a bird was created with regard to the topic wind.

FCP supervised the total design services from the basic conception up to the construction at the building site for its construction design regarding the feasibility of the necessities of stage mechanics (displacement and rotation) as well as the marginal conditions of the outdoor stage. In addition it was required to reach the highest possible cost effectiveness for the project in order to optimize the net profit.
