The Donauturm (English: Danube Tower) is a tower in Vienna, the tallest structure in Austria at 252 metres (827 ft) and among the 75 tallest towers in the world.
Opened in April 1964, the tower is located near the north bank of the Danube River in the district of Donaustadt. The hills Leopoldsberg and Kahlenberg are visible in the background.
It has become a part of the Viennese skyline and has become a popular lookout point and a tourist attraction. It is situated in the middle of the Donaupark, which was built to host the horticultural fair in Vienna's 22nd District, Donaustadt.
This is the first picture that I am incredibly proud of having edited. It took me around 4 hours to complete, but I’ve learned so much through the process.
The façade of our project Fraunhofer SIT that consists of a plastic membrane with integrated photovoltaic elements and foldable elements for sun protection. It's derived from the QR codes which are oneof the fields of activity of SIT. Thus the activity is reinterpreted into architectural design.
