This was the School Campus Neustift event as part of the “Out & About: Discovering Architecture with the 2022 European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies Van Der Rohe Awards (EUmies Awards)”. A short overview of the lecture and school visit by and with the architects in Neustift im Stubaital, Austria.
“School of Tomorrow” – with this requirement an international competition was launched. In 2019 the answer to this socially relevant question was completed in Neustift im Stubaital. Understanding schools as a basic principle of social coherence was of fundamental importance to those in charge. The realization of a future-oriented educational building was perceived and carried out as a joint task by all participants, the clients, the users and the architects.
Architects: Fasch und Fuchs Architekten (Hemma Fasch & Jakob Fuchs)
Client: Gemeinde Neustift

User: Schule Neustift in Tirol
The careful approach to this alpine landscape and the scale in relation to the neighboring rural structure makes the project appear modest. With the intention of protecting the existing quality of the open space as much as possible, the school campus has been designed as a flat, terraced, walkable green educational carpet, which is accessed by an inner and outer school walkway.
