Motion Mobility

The Austrian Mobility Club Headquarters

The new Vienna headquarters of ÖAMTC, Austria’s motorists association, is a remarkable example of collaboration in action, a testament to a process that was interdisciplinary from the choice of a site through completion of the building. Created through close partnerships among the client, architects Pichler & Traupmann, engineers FCP Fritsch, Chiari & Partner, and strategic consultants M.O.O.CON, together with Nofrontiere Design agency and SIDE Studio for Information Design, it is highly innovative in its design and technology, and it sets impressive new standards for corporate culture and working environments.
This new book tells documents the project comprehensively through essays examining the building’s complex genesis and conception, buttressed by copious ilustrations and by interviews with the clients, architects, and users of the building. A glance at the history of comparable “houses of speed” and a photo essay on the topic of mobility round out this striking book on this unique and exemplary multifunctional structure.
