Campus of Religions – interreligious meeting place
Located in Vienna’s Seestadt Aspern area, the Campus of Religions is a collaboration between eight religious denominations. This interfaith centre will welcome all religious institutions – and those who take a critical view of religion – as well as the general public. The upcoming exhibition at the Ringturm presents the architectural vision behind this peace project – the only one of its kind in the world. It showcases the designs submitted by a total of 42 architecture firms from Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Sweden, Poland and France that took part in the urban planning competition for this groundbreaking religious centre, which was put out to tender in 2020. The three winning projects and the recognition award winners form the focal point of the exhibition, with the overall winner – the design by Viennese architects Burtscher-Durig – taking centre stage.
