Academy above Democracy


At the same time as the temporary parliament building is being erected on Heldenplatz, the Academy of Fine Arts is looking for an alternative accommodation while its main building on Schillerplatz is being renovated. The “Academy Above Democracy” is the planned as reaction to the simultaneous spatial shift of these two media of democratic thinking and speaking.

The 10-metre-high work hall for students is open to the public and visitors can walk through it. The Academy cafeteria, the “Futuregarden” is located in the middle of the 150-metre-long hall, above the temporary Austrian Parliament, and offers visitors to discuss at eye level with the statue of Archduke Carl.
