"Terrassenhaussiedlung" (‘Terrace-Settlement’, loosely translated) is a brutalist building complex located in Graz / Austria. It was built in the 60s by "Werkgruppe Graz", a collective of local architects consisting of Eugen Gross, Friedrich Groß-Rannsbach, Werner Hollomey and Hermann Pichler.
Hello milkovicharch nice to see a Canadian architecture firm on here!

Since 1980, the number of prisons in the U.S. has quadrupled. Amazingly the country is home to less than 5% of the world’s population and yet holds almost 24% of the world’s prisoners. Tourlentes tells us that “newly opened prisons utilize modern high technology to control their population in contrast to the stone castles that preceded them. The rapid constructions of new prisons—a result of overcrowding caused by tough mandatory sentencing laws—are then sold as economic development programs for depressed communities vying to host them.” This overflow has also led to the operation of private “for profit” prisons by publicly traded corporations that contract with the government.
By focusing on the prisons that are often kept on the periphery of cities, Tourlentes hopes to bring them back into our consciousness, asking us to explore the tense relationship between the drastic increase in prisons and what that means for the “very nature of social priorities.”
New buildings and entirely redeveloped public spaces to make the Tower’s 1st floor once again one of Paris’ most spectacular and attractive locations, 57 meters above the city.
Since the last transformation of the 1st floor 30 years ago, the Tower has welcomed more visitors than during its first century of existence! The pavilions and public spaces of the 1980s are obsolete and not adapted to the number of visitors, the visitors’ expectations and technical standards.
