Photographing the new WU University Campus

Largely unnoticed the new university campus of the Economic University of Vienna (Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien) was build in a rather remote part of the city. So most of us knew about the construction plans but little did we know about the futuristic character and the sheer extent of the sight. What a surprise! The campus consists of about 6 to 8 buildings constructed by different architects in different styles. In common they have a modern and environmental friendly approach. They are centered around a student plaza effectively creating a public space for its “citizens”. There are also a couple of cafés and shops there. One of them being the “Campus” (shot 4) with a mixed approach of modernism and natural elements consisting of wood and plants. The centerpiece of the campus is the library (as it should be). It was designed by an architect from Hamburg and is simply astonishing (shots 2 – 3 exterior, shots 7 – 9 interior).

Modern Tallinn, Estonia

test

Tallinn is known for its medieval old town, an UNESCO world culture heritage sight very much worth visiting. In this gallery though I would like to give you a glimpse of the modern Tallinn inspired by the clear and sober architecture of Skandinavia. Beginning with shots taken in the Rottermann District, a brand new part of Tallinn in the East of the Old Town close to the port.

These two shots were taken in the architecture museum of Tallinn, showcasing a miniature model of the city.
