MCM – MedUni Mariannengasse Campus
Erection of a new university campus for the Medical University of Vienna in existing buildings partly protected as historical monuments or located in the protection zone.
Erection of a new university campus in Mariannengasse. In this process existing buildings which are partly protected as historical monuments and partly located in the protection zone are reconstructed on real estate with a total ground area of approx. 10,440 m² and complemented by means of partial demolition and annexes. Thus, the planned space allocation plan of the five university institutes (Physiology and Pharmacology, Anatomy and Cell Biology, Pathobiochemistry and Genetics, Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering, Cancer Research) can be implemented.
At the MedUni Mariannengasse Campus approx. 750 staff members will do research and teach approx. 1,900 students. Construction shall start in autumn 2020 so that university operation can begin in the winter semester of 2025/26.

„ Innovative, effective and architecturally independent solutions, which are furthermore economic, are required for complex and urbanistically prominent projects like the MedUni Mariannengasse Campus. BIG therefore relies on architectural competitions in order to get a wide spectrum of high-quality works. The latter not only contribute to the further development of the Austrian building culture but – considering the social devekopments – also help to show new ways in architecture. Especially in educational buildings this is particularly important to us in the scope of the initiative "educational area of the future”. “
