    High School of Agriculture, Baumgarten Manor
    Auer/Ora, The South Tyrolean Wine Road

    Baumgarten Manor was a grand estate with several buildings dating from the thirteenth century, which underwent a number of structural modifications. For renovation and remodeling for repurposing, the existing heritage-listed structure was to be preserved and modern features adjoined where needed. A three-story block was added in order to connect the individual tracts. All new components were designed as steel-and-glass structures so that they would stand out clearly from the solid, plastered original building, without being pushed to the forefront intrusively. The inner courtyard was paved, trees were planted and an illuminated guide line to the entrances was embedded into the ground. It continues at the main entrance as a gully. This guide line recurs in the interior corridors, its careful use of color conveying an atmosphere that is almost artistic.

    Claudiana Province Technical College
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs

    The Province Technical College for the Health Professions was built in close proximity to Bolzano Hospital. The two-story reinforced concrete structure, surrounded by a glass facade, towers on an L-shaped plan. With steel supports for the balconies in front of the facade and the broad, cantilevered canopy construction, which goes around the whole building. The structure is light, almost floating, an interesting contrast to the monumental staircases built in front. The interior design, with floors made of pale natural stone, partition walls made from maple, glass and aluminum as well as its warm colors, lend Claudiana Province Technical College a pleasant atmosphere. There is a broad, square tiled plaza in front of the building, which conveys a very spacious feel.

    Plima gorge
    Martell/Martello, Vinschgau/Val Venosta
    Four new gorge scenes with four imposing constructions of corten steel integrated with nature were realized on behalf of the Laces-Val Martello tourist association and the municipality of Martello to present hikers this gorge with all its beauties. Hikers thus have the possibility to experience the gorge at close quarters for the first time. Spray inclusive!
    Thanks to comparatively small interventions the four constructions – trowel, panoramic crescent, observation pulpit and suspension bridge – give the visitors the possibility to have different special encounters with the gorge. The starting and finishing point is at the parking area at the end of the valley, from there you go to the first vantage point, the "trowel". Visitors can climb down safe steps and experience the thunder of the water, the spray as well as the sides of finely polished rock faces from the edge of the trowel.
    The second vantage point, the "panoramic crescent", offers an open panoramic view of the opposite mountain peaks, Rifugio Nino Corsi, towards Hotel Paradiso and out of the valley.
    The steps of the "observation pulpit" take the visitor from the vegetation up beyond the edge. The vertical view into the gorge conveys a sense of weightlessness.
    The fourth building at the end, the suspension bridge enables you to cross the gorge at a dizzy height between the two banks. The bridge is designed in a way that it can be principally used all around the year. This is a direct connection to the "Rifugio Nino Corsi/Zufallhütte", to the dam, the "Bau"; now on the left side of the canyon until you come back to the parking lot.

    Luigi Einaudi Province Vocational School
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs

    This vocational school underneath Mount Virgl in Haslach was created through a competition in 1975. The compact building complex comprises four units: the three-part office and classroom wing, the two wings of the workshops, the auditorium and the gym. The concrete construction with exposed brick infill forms a very sustainable structure for which an expansion program was developed in the 1990s, which led to the addition of another story onto the previously built three-story class and office building. On the ground floor a meeting room for 150 people was built, with foyer and control room. At the same time, the technical infrastructure – heating, sanitary facilities, water treatment system with solar collectors – was renovated and upgraded. The addition of the new story matches the existing building structure, but is clearly recognizable as an extension.

    Rosmini School, Cafeteria and Gym
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs

    Loffererhof Farm and its greenhouses, located behind the old Gries church, were demolished shortly after 1900, and the elementary school and kindergarten were built in 1908. The school was renovated in 1998. A gymnasium was added to this building group in 2002, an independent fourth building that encloses the intermediate schoolyard space. The transparent construction, a steel-and-glass structure, is reminiscent of the Orangerie that was formerly located here. The ball-proof suspended construction of the glass façade makes the building appear transparent and affords views of the old chestnut tree. The cafeteria, a final addition, was completed in 2008, inserted into the narrow space between the street and the old school building underground with a skylight in such a way that the historical building still appears detached.

    Province Vocational School in Bolzano
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs

    Urban planning considerations led to three parallel, elongated wings of varying heights, the two-story covered entrance which is situated on Lazzeriniplatz Square. Its use of the same materials: exposed concrete, steel and glass throughout, and consistent design, convey an architectonically heterogeneous environment of tranquility and space. From the entrance you walk into a spacious, light-flooded hall between the first and second wings, which reaches all of the floors. Underneath there is the sports hall, with stair towers at the ends. The glazed steel bridges, designed by Heimo Zobernig, allow for open access to the third wing and to the break area of the roof terrace.

    Schnalstal Valley Glacier
    Schnals/Senales, Meran/Merano and environs

    Skiing area at the Schnalstal Glacier
    Easily reachable by the cable car, the glacier of Val Senales at 3,212 m a.s.l is the ideal starting point for varied runs (42 km of slopes) across all levels. From wide slopes for carving to the challenging 8 km long valley run for athletic skiers, the ski area also offers two cross country slopes and a toboggan run through the winter forest. Numerous huts and sun terraces invite for enjoying the traditional dishes of the South Tyrolean cuisine. Alreday in mid-September the international ski trainers are here for their training lessons. The winter season begins on mid-September and ends at the beginning of may.

    Hiking area at the Schnalstal Glacier
    In summertime the Schnalstal Glacier Cable Car and also the Lazaun Cable Car are open.

    The Hochjochferner Glacier in Schnalstal Valley is a popular destination for high Alpine hiking in South Tyrol. Demanding tours lead up to the Weisskugel and Finailspitze mountains, as well as to the spectacular Similaun peak near Oetzi’s discovery place.

    With the new Lazaun cable car you can reach the Lazaun mountain station comfortably and safely in about 4 minutes. Up here you will find a very special alpine flora and fauna, as the Lazaun plateau is characterized by the power of the glaciers and an upland moor. If you are looking for more entertainment, you can rent mountaincarts, which will ensure an actionpacked descent.

    Province Building 2
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs

    In terms of design, responding to Angiolo Mazzoni's imposing train station building (1928), on the opposite side of the street, was no easy task. This has been achieved to the point that the new building, like the train station, goes beyond architecture and is now an urban structure. Its undulated form, which is divided into individual houses, is determined by the surrounding urban spaces: by the semicircular station square on the front, by the rectangular Magnagoplatz, and by the Laurin- and Rittner Straße at the rear. The building itself is crossed by three radial passageways from the station square and has two inner courtyards. The facades on the ground and mezzanine floors are clad in white marble, the four upper floors in reddish porphyry. The interior spaces of the building are well illuminated; the design of the office departments is varied.

    Parish church S. Luzius
    Latsch/Laces, Vinschgau/Val Venosta

    The parish church of St. Lucius in Tiss in Coldrano was given its uniform gothic design back in 1491. Its gothic mural painting on the southern side of the church is worth a look, also the marble gravestone laid by Governor Franz Hendl.

    The parish church of St. Dionysius in Morter was constructed in a gothic style, and was consecrated in 1479. The frescoes of painter Adrian Mair, which date back to the 17th century, are of particular interest, given that he hails from Laces himself.

    Sigmundskron Castle
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs

    Sigmundskron is a symbol found in South Tyrol's early history. It was first mentioned in 945 and was built into a fortress in 1473 by Duke Sigmund. In 1996 the ruins were taken over by the Autonomous Province of Bolzano-Bozen and in 2003 they were handed over to Reinhold Messner to be transformed into the Messner Mountain Museum. The preservation of the character and protection of the ruins was the main concern during the conversion building works. The steel constructions which were developed for this purpose were positioned at a distance with as few contact points as possible with the outer stone walls and the interior of the towers and rooms, so that these seemingly light architectural elements can be removed at any time. The design of these sections of the building has been kept as simple as possible, and they are clearly set apart from the historical parts of the building. This allows for a distinct demarcation of the old and the new.

    Outdoor Pool (Lido) in Bolzano
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs

    The contemporary longing for nature and sports in the city influenced the thinking of the Fascist municipal government of Bolzano/Bozen and, as a result, had an outdoor swimming complex built on the banks of the Isarco/Eisack River. From a horticultural viewpoint, the site was designed as a striking landscape architecture within the urban area. The buildings show the influence of the Italian rationalist thought of those years, oriented towards the Bauhaus. Clear functionality and a design that is both reduced and concentrated on the essential, avoided Fascist monumentality of any kind. The plastered entrance building with its sweeping terrace section shows expressive motifs that do not deny the influence of the Gmunden outdoor pool by Franz Gessner, a student of Otto Wagner's. Although this architecture seemed strange to the South Tyroleans of the day, it is nevertheless of lasting quality.

    Hannah Arendt Vocational School
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs

    Behind the monastery garden rises the light facade of the Kapuzin Monastery, next to which the disguised new school building built in a grey sandstone sits unnoticed. A section of wall was added onto the old east-facing facade, behind which there is a corridor with classrooms that look onto the intimate monastery courtyard. The majority of the rooms had to be built underground due to the extremely limited space available. Illumination in these rooms has been created through skylights in the garden and sophisticated guided shafts of light. This directed lighting removes any trace of a cellar-like feeling, and allows for a highly concentrated learning environment. An elegant set of steel steps leads from the entrance hall to all of the floors; all of the corridors are colorfully decorated. An aesthetic symbiosis between the old and the new has been found for this place of teaching and learning.

    Landhaus 11
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs

    The rather unattractive post office of the 1950s was converted into a passive house to be used as an administration building. The addition of two more stories improved its size, also in relation to the surrounding area. Next to the elegant station tower, the stairwell of this old building no longer fit in and was covered with solar panel elements during the conversion. The bulky body of the building was brought to life through various window designs, which allow for an interplay of shadow and light. The 3% extra costs spent on energy-saving technology for the building has paid itself within five years: this gold low-energy house only costs 45 euro per worker on heating, as opposed to the 270 euro buildings in category C pay. This is, in fact, the first office block in Italy that meets passive house standards. The interior, with its wide corridors for special uses, is light and friendly, using only the simplest materials.

    New Nives Building
    Stilfs/Stelvio, Vinschgau/Val Venosta

    The new Nives construction is another building block towards a focal point for the tourist village of Solda/Sulden, which is unstructured from an urban planning point of view: this is true spatially, with its compact volumes, and in the surface with a new square design, and functional, with a variety of dining options. The seven different restaurants, bars, cafes and clubs alone offer a lively atmosphere with a sun terrace. Two hotel categories, the simple Base Camp and the Base Camp de Luxe, are available for overnight guests. These very different offerings for tourists are housed in a solid construction made of plastered masonry, natural stone and wood right on the edge of the slope behind the square. The interior design is adapted to the various functions and, with lots of wood, is robust yet elegant. The arrangement of the floor plans into freestanding buildings allows for beautiful views in all directions.

    EURAC European Academy
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs

    The Fascist Youth GIL Buildings emerged in Merano/Meran, Bressanone/Brixen and Bolzano/Bozen in the 1930s according to designs by the architects Miozzo and Mansutti. Although in need of renovation, only the Bressanone structure has retained its original form. In Bolzano one of the most important buildings of Fascist Italy's rationalism period, a structure that had already been dilapidated, has been successfully repurposed. It was renovated and expanded through a competition. The fact that an Austrian architect achieved this, shows the overlap of cultures in Bolzano. The renovated, heritage-listed old building sections, painted in Tuscany red, were contrasted with a transparent building of glass and steel on a lightweight concrete structure, which also redefined the urban context with a vestibule, garden café and garden courtyard. The design of the interior spaces is just as light as that of the external appearance.

    Lois Anvidalfarei Workshop
    Badia, Dolomites Region Alta Badia

    On the site of a small workshop that was to be demolished, next to the existing barn, a larger studio and garage were to be built. The site was to change as little as possible; the new building was to enlarge the existing structure of the farm and its size integrated into the surroundings. The entrance is under the barn bridge, which is on the same level as the new studio’s gallery and thus establishes a link between the two buildings. The garage below is equally unseen from the street, as is the entire height of the studio − both of which are accessible from the courtyard below. The new structures were built of concrete, with an insulated outer shell made of vertical larch cladding. The roof is likewise made of larch wood and has a large studio window on the northern side. The interior of the workshop has been kept white and decorated with light-colored wood.

    Salewa Headquarters
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs

    Anyone who approaches Bolzano/Bozen from the south along the A22 will see the Salewa building, to the right of the highway, a modern gateway to the city. Three office towers, with four, seven and twelve floors respectively, are set in a urban dialogue one with the other and with the surrounding mountain landscape. Through the freely formed designs as well as the facades of dark glass and gray aluminum, the building mass retreats and yet, at the same time, matches the colors of the mountain. In the seemingly unusually shaped building volumes made of a reinforced concrete structure with curtained glass and/or metal facades, South Tyrol’s largest climbing gym is housed in addition to the company warehouse and administrative offices. This structure adjoins a small recreational park with a garden area and a restaurant, which matches Salewa’s sporting goods production nicely.

    Pergola Residence
    Algund/Lagundo, Meran/Merano and environs

    In the vineyards above the village this structure comprising four staggered terraces, was graded into the hillside. The building was integrated so harmoniously into the vineyards that it has become a part of them. This integration is still underlined by the dry-stone retaining walls, which likewise carry forward the vineyard structure. The building’s concrete structure remains invisible, covered by wooden paneling and by the wooden grating set in front of portions of the glass facades. Floor-to-ceiling glazing of the spaces lends the terraces a transparency, covered by the wooden pergolas, with the shadowy effect of over-grown foliage. The reception and breakfast room, paneled entirely in wood, are good examples of a modern interpretation of rural Stube parlors. The apartments are also of high aesthetic quality.

    Victory Monument
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs

    It was Mussolini’s idea to establish a memorial to the fallen soldiers of the First World War on the site where a monument to the Kaiserjäger had already been commenced. A collection of donations throughout the whole of Italy financed the new monument. However, the architect designed a victory monument in the style of Roman triumphal arches as apologia for the conquest-hungry fascists with its insignia and an inscription, which refers to the martial tradition of the Roman Empire. It was seen as a grave insult to German-speaking South Tyroleans. After lengthy negotiations between the province of South Tyrol and the Italian cultural ministry, the high-fenced-in monument opened, in the catacombs of the building, a permanent exhibition in 2014 about events that unfolded under two dictatorships from 1918-1945, in order to improve understanding and communication.

    Residential Block EA7 Casanova
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs

    Based on the urban concept of Dutch architect Frits van Dongen, this group of buildings nettled between orchards and vineyards was developed with farmsteads and castles in mind. In keeping with the “Living in the Park” concept, the three separate buildings comprising the polygonal residential block are centered around a spacious courtyard. Large free-form entrances connect it to the underground garage and form the well-lit main entrance to the complex. Sophisticated architectural design was created in order to conform to the restrictive guidelines for the sponsored residential complex. Four layout designs and three different window shapes were employed in creating flats for 92 families, all designed slightly differently. The exteriors are of a rough, beige concrete while the smooth, white-varnished facades of the courtyard optimize the open space of the private courtyard.

    Museion and Bridge
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs

    Museion and its bridge link the old Austrian and the new Italian neighborhoods of the city, creating a built connection to a new era opposite the divisive Fascist architecture of the victory monument. The stylistic idiom of the mostly closed building, wrapped in its aluminum armor and with its far-reaching right angles, opens onto both parts of the city with its glassed narrow sides, encouraging one to enter. These glass facades are transformed into projection screens in the urban setting when darkness falls. The purely white architecture takes over the clear rooms inside, without dominating: a function to serve diverse exhibitions. The two swaying parts of the bridge over the Talvera/Talfer River form part of the museum’s concept: they symbolize the crossover of the two cultures that coexist here.

    Museums
    Rieserferner-Ahrn Nature Park House
    Sand in Taufers/Campo Tures, Ahrntal/Valle Aurina

    Entering the museum, a film shot from eagle‘s-eye-view provides you with an unusual impression of the park. A 3D relief provides visitors with multimedia information concerning the park’s mountains, trails, refuges, lakes and waterfalls. A pendulum gives visitors a close-up look at how the mountains arose, while a kind of stone puzzle provides insight into the geological structure of the mountains. Visitor information systems give information concerning nature, the landscape and the evolution of the nature park region. And for kids there are fairy tales and legends from times past.

    Semirurali Residential Complex
    Bolzano/Bozen, Bolzano/Bozen and environs

    Under Mussolini in the 1930s, Italian factory workers were settled in a garden city called the Semirurali. These very simple houses with gardens for self-sufficiency were demolished in the postwar period, and replaced by modern residential buildings. The new complex tried not to distribute and make freely accessible the individual residential buildings around the property but rather to plan squares and streets in accordance with the existing “rules of urban design.” In the spaces between, contiguous rows of buildings were built. They border the streets and squares, as was common in the cities before the relaxed construction of modern times gave up these norms. In spite of the row construction, the buildings stand out as individual homes because of the arrangement of loggias and glass coverings as the color scheme, and thereby convey a feeling of identity.
