Dense cityscape

On the premises of the former Bruckner University, an architectural symbiosis of living and education weaves into an urban design symphony in the urban fabric. A lively quarter building block, the Bruckner Tower on the north side of Linz contributes to creating a connected built-up ensemble and provides a varied and livable urban space. The bent multi-aspect façades of the clearly readable sculptural structure respond to its architectural context and give the high-rise a slender silhouette with a changing appearance. The Bruckner Tower thus is able to act as an ingenious landmark and backbone for the cityscape east of the Lentia complex. Its distinctive shape is underscored by wraparound strip balconies with parapets that seem to dematerialize in upward direction, from massive concrete to optically lighter delicate glass. The transparent two-story plinth is positioned around an inner courtyard which gives on to a generous plaza on the north side. The plinth, which accommodates a school and kindergarten, combines with the residential high-rise into one unified design composition, which is accentuated by the inner courtyard, the two plazas, and rooftops with generous green areas.
