Cycle Space Vienna An urban adventure area and exhibition of the bicycle manufacturing of Vienna The city of Vienna can look back on years of tradition in bicycle manufacturing. Unfortunately, a lot of knowledge and additionally the Bicycles itself from the past got lost. My personal interest in historical and classical bicycles is the foundation for this work. This idea evolved into the concept of a museum, documenting the history of bicycle manufacturing in Vienna in an easily accessible and appealing way. The book „Wiener Mechaniker Räder“ was another input, which offers a good overview of the formerly located bicycle manufactures in Vienna. The final reason for my work was the loss of the unique bicycle collection Embacher in Austria due to an auction. The idea was to preserve valuable space and not to eliminate it without replacement. The construction of Rad Raum Wien will provide an ensemble of different offers for residents, visitors and the City of Vienna. ^Looking for a suitable location I noticed the roofing of the Wien river on the border to the Naschmarkt and the area of the underground station Kettenbrückengasse. In contrast to the current purpose of use, a parking lot for cars, the new design will not only provide a museum, but also a playable area. This will bring new life into this location and replace the dreary look of “dead” metal. The actual situation in Vienna is very complicated for bikers, pedestrians and the City itself. Cycle tracks often end up in parking lots and additionally, pedestrians and bikers have to cross the heavily used Linke Wienzeile to reach the districts Mariahilf and Margareten. The RRW will create an important Link between this two districts. Ramps and Stairs allow an easy crossing of the Linke Wienzeile. For people with physical disabilities, two elevators are available. ^The massive building, rising from the ground, integrates the bow underneath, whereby freestanding bows in the foreground of to the museum lead to them. Pedestrians and bikers are guided through the museum by integrated ramps and stairs. The exhibition rooms are integrated into the ground like the rough profile of bicycle tyres. They interrupt the surface and reflect the structures of the exhibition to enable new insights and outlooks in the museum. The interior of the museum is dominated by clear surfaces. In addition, mobile exhibits, representing the profile of bicycle tyres, provide space for the exhibited bicycles. The great construction adjacent to the Linke Wienzeile provides protection against traffic noise and thereby creating a quiet place on the south side. The profile of a bicycle tyre, which is extensively integrated into the façade, should loosen up the monumental appearance. Seating steps on top of the building function as a place for relaxation. ^This creates the impression of a theatre which can be used for events in summer. An additional implemented coffee house on top invite the visitors to linger and offer an overview of this special location. To promote and further develop the understanding of construction and technology of bicycles an open bicycle repair shop in the foreground is planned. The roofing of the Wien river shows a special construction situation. Therefore, historical blueprints were processed in this Master thesis allowing a close representation of the original construction. Due to this preparation, the concept of Rad Raum Vienna had been implemented. The museum RadRaumWien is designed for bicycles and people. It is a place for sports, social encounters and a link of two urban spaces.
