Tallest building in Austria by Dominique Perrault
March 3, 2014

Dominique Perrault DC Tower I Vienna WienThe DC Tower 1 is now open after three years of construction. With its height of 250 meters and 60 floors the DC Tower 1 is the tallest building in Austria.
The renowned French architect Dominique Perrault is responsible for the spectacular architecture. The appearance of the DC Tower 1 is mainly characterized by its extraordinary "folded" facade and slim structure that results from the height of 250m and a width of only average 28m and a length of 59m.
Architect Dominique Perrault comments the DC Tower 1: "In planning it was not primarily a matter of setting new record heights, but to create a well-designed building, which stands out with its sophisticated design and the high quality of the property. The height of the tower stems from the ambition to preserve the attractive aesthetics of a slender tower at the obstruction of the proposed cubature extent. With this first tower the city of Vienna has demonstrated that the punctual and controlled emergence of high-rises can participate in creating the city and produce contemporary, economical, high-energy performance mixed-use buildings adapted to metropolitan business requirements and lifestyles."
