|Wien Museum||The Wien Museum is an urban, universal museum with a wide range of collections and exhibitions - from urban history via art up to fashion and everyday culture, and epoch-wise from the earliest settlement to the present. |
With this generalist approach and its interdisciplinary potential the Wien Museum occupies a unique position within the Viennese museum landscape. It is present at several places within the city. Using the city of Vienna as a frame of reference, it addresses comprehensive societal, cultural and urban changes in a variety of big cities.
When contemplating history and working with its relics, the museum seeks to keep its mind open for topical themes and issues. This endeavor is based on the conservation, study and permanent reinterpretation of the objects in its collections and their role in human life. While the Wien Museum does not primarily see itself as an art museum, the occupation with art and the preconditions of its emergence are among its remits. Esthetic phenomena are put into the context of sociopolitics and cultural heritage and addressed with questions transcending the realm of esthetics (“art plus x” as a principle).
The history of the city and its civilizations is not conceived of as an homogenized process: when collecting and exhibiting its relics it is being treated as the outcome of life styles, interests and the memories of humans of diverse origins. Henceforth, col-lection activities will be guided by the principles of radical selectivity and the significant detail. The collections are focused on Vienna and future acquisitions will favor objects of the 20th and 21st centuries.
The Wien Museum is a knowledge repository and a public medium. To the Viennese, both the autochthones and newcomers, and their temporary guests it provides space for thought and reflection.
|Procedure||Open, two-stage, anonymous project competition including an urban-design ideas part followed by a negotiated procedure; in terms of its contract value, this is a major contract award procedure according to BVergG 2006 in the version presently in force (see “Wettbewerbsstandard Architektur – WSA 2010“ part A articles V 1a, 2a, 2b and 3b).|
In stage 1 of the competition, the jury selected, on the basis of preliminary design concepts focused on urban design and the assessment criteria as per competiton brief, 14 participants to compete in stage 2.
In stage 2 of the competition, the jury will select, on the basis of the elaboration of the preliminary design concepts from stage 1, the prizewinners.
Subsequent to the competition procedure, according to § 30 par. 2 Z 6 BVergG 2006 a negotiated procedure will be conducted with the winner of the competition.
Object of the present procedure are services as per Section A § 3 and C § 3 HOA 2004 that are the, including finished execution planning (par. 1 - 5) as well as the artistic supervision. The promoter reserves the right to define modifications in the competition documents e.g. in case of non-realization, the task being performed by a general contractor or within the framework of a PPP procedure.
|Eligible for participation are individuals and consortia from the WTO member countries as well as Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Eligibility will be checked on the basis of the certificate of professional aptitude which is to accompany the entry and must be valid during the course of the competition and the subsequent negotiated procedure.|
Considered eligible are:
Eligible for participation in stage 2 of the competition only those competitors from stage 1 that have been selected by the jury and notified accordingly.
Competitors selected for participation in stage 2 must, depending on their qualification, choose an open space planner or a landscape architect, respectively, as co-author and mention her/him in the declaration of authorship of stage 2. For those, the above-mentioned requirements apply accordingly.
The competitors in stage 1 agree to participate, in the event of being admitted to stage 2, in said stage 2 of the competition with the same team of design authors that previously competed in stage 1.
Eligible for participation are also consortia of individuals and legal entities.
Every competitor in the present procedure is only admitted once (even within the framework of a consortium). Any multiple participation will result in the rejection of all the competition entries in which the relevant author has been involved. This provision does not apply to expert consultants on whose services the competitors may have called, provided their participation does not distort the competition.
It is not allowed to enter variations of the same project.
Together with the declaration of authorship every competitor must submit a personal declaration stating his or her eligibility for participation. A check of the professional aptitude will only be performed subsequent to the jury’s decision and only on the person of the winner so as to make sure that he or shed is eligible for being invited to the negotiated procedure. The competitors must join proof of their eligibility for participation (such as copies of the documents certifying their registration with a Chamber of Architects, certificates evidencing their entry into a list of architects or records of study) to the declaration of authorship to be submitted in stage 2.
Collaborators of the competitors and experts upon the services of which the competitors called may be named and will be given credit by the promoter in the publication of the competition results.
The promoter may at any time request proof of professional qualification.
