BWM Architekten won in cooperation with PLANET architects and Perndl+Co the competition for the new Literature Museum of the Austrian National Library in Vienna. A listed archive building from the Habsburg monarchy will be transformed into a modern literature museum. The unique, historic character of this building will be preserved and its distinctive archival atmosphere will gain additional appeal thanks to modern exhibition architecture and multimedia presentations. The new museum will be a key location for the study of Austrian authors.
