After its heyday around the turn of the century, Bad Gastein tried to fight decades of decline with this congress center. It is perched spectacularly on a steep slope and contrasts the surrounding buildings with its functionalist exposed concrete design language. Garstenauer opened up the square above and created a large, well lit space to set the project apart from the surronding narrow alleyways. (Special thanks to Norbert Mayr)
