The Donauzentrum in Vienna is Austria’s second largest shopping center. The impressive air-cushion facade made of partially transparent and partially printed ETFE foil specially developed by Temme // Obermeier
embodies the architectural attraction of the center. LED lights were arranged in a polygon behind the air cushions and the outer foil was printed in white using screen printing. The air-cushion facade made of printed ETFE foil
gives the center its unique visual charm: During the day the light passes directly through the cushion and provides for a bright feel-good atmosphere. When night falls, the LED lights draw attention to the spectacular facade.
