Morizgasse 8/9, A-1060 Vienna, Austria
Since 2004 Heribert Wolfmayr (1973) and Josef Saller (1971) – heri&salli – have been working on architectonic, spatial and temporary concepts that only achieve their objectives when the completed object is presented to other people. The material acquires meaning and purpose through having counterparts. Time and time again, it is human beings who make up the active part of the reason behind an architectonic concept.

Energy - Land - Tower


a solar updraft tower for Vienna’s urban space
The engergy-land-tower is a compressed habitat, as well concerning the vertical as the horizontal- that’s specific about it. It includes not only the height but also the material range. That’s what’s often missing in the competition for the highest house.
File under

Around a tube-like concrete core as updraft shaft of the so called energy-land-tower developes a 1000 meter high habitable landscape. We move away from the concept of the house- as well as the classical high-rise, which we are used to comprehend as a closed building. We don’t stack storey over storey for a building, instead we arrange the ground and the land in the space, thereafter we integrate the buildings, sort of a high-rise-land.

By means of an orthogonal three-dimensional structure – following grid like urban planning- we begin by spreading out and opening up a space, that can be used afterwards. The grid formulates opening upconnecting- and public zones that are available. Around the inner structure mobile climate shields are arranged. They can form into shells or cover individually , if necessary ,single parts. The structure forms the space and in the same time spreads out the climate shields.
