The building of the Learning and Library Center in Vienna, which has been designed by Zaha Hadid, is at the heart of the 90,000 m² sized premises of the new University for Economics and Business Administration. The two main zones of the building are unmistakeably recognizable by the two interlocking structures: the public area in black and the non-public area in white. Architect Zaha Hadid opted for glassfibre-reinforced concrete panels as distinctive facade material. The Austrian Rieder Group won the bid with its fibreC facade panels. Beyond the differently coloured concrete look, the 13mm thin glassfibre concrete elements were able to meet all the requirements of the star architect, including aesthetics, material quality and the challenge of implementing the design of a slightly curved building cubature with curved panels.
