The New VIC M Conference Building by Albert Wimmer, which was completed in 2008, is a new unique Danube City landmark. Its shape is a reaction to the VIC, but it breaks away from the VIC’s geometrical stringency and stands as a contemporary architectural interpretation that creates a dialogue with its surroundings. The compact conference core and the flowing, transparent enclosure zones define the perception of the building from the outside. But the truly eye-catching elements are on the inside: the ramps, stairs and foyers as well as the translucent visual axes emphasize the functional access to the facility’s centerpiece: the conference rooms. The access areas become an architectural landscape with the help of the building’s subtle stepping. The VIC M building is an important milestone in the history of the VIC and it documents the importance of contemporary architecture. The reader is given an insight into the extraordinary architecture design, as well as conference operations and the impressive conference technology with its demanding, specific requirements.
