Christian Aste, Andreas Glatzl and Gerald Huber

 
Abstract     [Full Text]
    The ski jump in Innsbruck known for the famous annual New Year "Four-ski-jump-tournament" has been fully renewed. The original jumping tower (built for the 1976 Olympic winter games) was fully pulled down and a new landmark similar to a lighthouse has been erected located on a small hill at the border of the city. Zaha Hadid (London) won the international architectural competition for this significant building. The constructional realisation has been ordered from Aste Konstrucktion and has been finally honoured with the Austrian State award for consulting 2002. After a very strict rimetable the building was already handed over to the ownder for the jumping event in January 2002 and has been fully opened in September 2002 with a restaurant at the top.
