design of a hangar for gliders in St.Georgen, Pustertal. After thorough topographical and climatic study of the region, as well as considering the necessary thermal soaring conditions (such as sunshine duration, precipitation and composition of the ground for instance), St.Georgen was found to be the ideal location for the hangar. The project corresponds to the original and easy type of movement of flying. The hangar reacts to the climatic influences and regional conditions of scope and airspace as sensitively as the flying object itself. Apart from the facilities for the storage and maintenance of the flying equipment, a restaurant, as well as a sky bar and training rooms for a flight training school for soaring were designed. The special construction of the hangar’s cover based on oscillating pillars, allows the cover to react aerodynamically to the changing winds, just as a wind-driven glider. The natural strength changes the outer appearance of the structure of the place. At the same time the building serves the glider as point of orientation within the landscape and gives important information to the pilots about the prevalent conditions on the ground. The roof glides over the building as air over the earth; it marks a transition from rock to sky, as well as the sublimation from the physical to the atmosphere.
