highest culture prize for architecture

Shopping arcade Linz

The arcade was spark to boost business in the city center of Linz. It is not only the oldest, but also always still the largest city centre business passage of Austria. From all four streets surrounding the block there are accesses which lead to the centre of the arcade. This passage branches inherit the different elevation of the roads and compensate these with gentle ramps. The project succeeds to unite shops and apartments and offices, and we were awarded for this in 1993 with the Upper Austrian national culture Prize for architecture.
