New ATC tower 'Schild & Schwert'

The new tower overlooking the currently planned third runway marks the entrance of the new Airport City at Vienna International Airport. Besides its function as the new air control centre for Austria the new building represents an iconic landmark for the airport. Its double skin performs as an independent surface, which provides different visual appearances according to daylight and the time of the day and can be utilised for projections and art installations.
