form—follies—function Workshop Tower by HARDDECOR ARCHITEKTUR
The former climbing tower in the outdoor space of the “Wienerbruck” base camp in Lower Austria’s largest nature park “Ötscher Tormäuer” was rethought in 2021. Johanna Digruber and Christian Fröhlich, who jointly run the studio HARDDECOR ARCHITEKTUR in Vienna, transformed the tower wasteland into a “flying classroom”, opening up new possibilities for mediating nature. The building, which had become useless, thus represents the paradigm shift – away from event culture and towards a knowledge society.
