Last week saw the launch of a new publication, "Herzblut" ("life-blood"). The festivities took place in the offices of the architecture platform 'architektur in progress', located in the so-called 'Stadtelefanten'(city elephant), a new building in Vienna's Sonnwendviertel district.

The publication provides an overview of the top 150 architecture practices in and around Austria, who have presented their work in 'architecture in progress' over the past 20 years.

schneider+schumacher's Vienna office is one of these practices. Here it presents work with an emphasis on approach and working methods, plus a project that is particularly close to their hearts.

Getting started at the Technical Town Hall in Mannheim

Several times a day, a webcam, set up by the company Mannheimer Wohnungsbau, documents the current state of work on the building site for the Technical Town Hall.

At the moment one can watch the base plate being cast, which will be completed by Christmas. The formwork for the first of the walls is also already in place.

By the beginning of April 2019 construction work will most likely have reached the casting of the first upper floors.

A fresh glimpse of the activity

The residential complex DOXX is intended to become the centrepiece of the harbour district in Mainz. The scheme has been designed by schneider+schumacher, in collaboration with bb22 Architekten.

A short video, produced by the client PANDION, shows how the building site is progressing. The plinth is next in line to be built, following the completion of the underground garage. A full-scale mock-up of the facade already gives an impression of what is to come in the next months.
