The Botanical Garden in Linz is one of the most beautiful and species-diverse gardens in Austria: on approximately 4.2 hectares, around 10,000 different plant species can be seen, different biotopes can be discovered and unique areas can be experienced. Various events and exhibitions around the year ensure a diverse and entertaining program for the residents of Linz and for all the guests of the Botanical Garden.

This year BASEhabitat is enriching the Botanical Garden with a new construction: a pavilion made of all-natural materials is being built and integrated into the impressive garden landscape. The compact pavilion offers a sitting area, opens up to various green oases within the surroundings and provides exhibition and information areas for visitors of all ages.

The central design theme was the fine line between object and context, as well as investigating the symbiosis between man-made architecture and placemaking and the green, natural landscape of the Botanical Garden. Carefulness and tranquility characterize the new place. The pavilion does not appear ostentatious, it does not intrude, but rather brings the diverse biotopes of the garden to the foreground. The new built intervention is in harmony with the surrounding and humbly complements the existing qualities of the Botanical Garden.
