Last December the results of the 11th session of Europan competition were oficially announced. In the Spanish edition we have 5 winners, 7 runners-up and 7 honourable mentions. Among the European results there were 36 awarded Spanish teams: 9 winners, 15 runners-up and 12 honourable mentions. Among the awarded studios we are happy to see Donaire Arquitectos and with their proposal for urban-architectural stategies for the entrance point to the city of Graz in the neighbourhood of the Arnold Schwartzenegger Stadium.

The programme assumes a construction of an apartment tower, together with a solution for an important communication node where car trafic, tramway, railway and cycling routes meet. All these are conditioned by the access to the Stungraz Stadium, which shall be equipped with an underground parking lot. The total project site reaches 30.380 .

The radical option of the proposal is todemand the street level in the city of Graz, making room for sports, social and cultural activities on a public road, focusing all the formal programme requirements in a container buildingThe Bridgeas a visual reference for the city of Graz“. To acheive it, the wheel trafic is led underground and the new multipurpose building houses all the necesary functions like the transport interchange station, social, cultural experiences, shops and housing. It´s a great challenge  and a reference for the urban sector  both for its scale and its constructionbased on the respect for the surroundings and its active and pasive sustainability criteria”.
