The old military barracks Kasematten are along the dome, the castle of the theresian military academy and the remains of the former city walls, one of Wiener Neustadt’s most significant historical monuments. The Kasematten are located in one of the city’s most privileged areas and operate as transition from the historic ensemble and Stadtpark. The project of the military site has created a beautiful subterranean landscape consisting of streets and arches and is unique regarding its use, morphology and typology.
We consider the upcoming county-fair in 2019 and the erection of the new gallery as great opportunity to highlight the existing structure and to improve its connecting impact on the city and the parks.
