RISC Extension


Video presented at the opening ceremony. It shows the materialization of the building.

It was more than twenty years ago that Bruno Buchberger moved with the RISC Institute (Research Institute for Symbolic Computation) from the main campus of JKU (Johannes Kepler University Linz) to Hagenberg. The medieval castle of Hagenberg, which had just been renovated by the upper austrian government, was now the new home for RISC. Since then, many things have changed in Hagenberg: the Meierhof turned into the Softwarepark, the University for Applied Sciences was founded by RISC, new companies moved to the Softwarepark, student dorms, etc. Also RISC has been growing continuously, so that space in the castle is now exhausted: RISC must expand!

Planned by the renowned architects Riepl&Riepl Architekten from Linz, who have also conducted the award-winning renovation of the castle 25 years ago, the RISC expansion will be located to the north of the castle just next to the existing pond. It will be a two-story building to the east of the pond leaning towards the slope along the parking area with its main entrance from the north. The flat roof of the building will not reach higher than the current street level, so from the parking lot the building will expand downwards. Towards the park and the pond the building will be equipped with a glass facade.

The upper floor will have a seminar room, project offices and social areas, the lower floor will mainly consist of smaller office units and a visitors office. An extra entrance from the south gives easy access to the building when connecting to or from the castle.
