The Departments of Biology have found their new academic home in the University of Vienna Biology Building at Djerassiplatz 1 in the 3rd district. More than 5,000 students and nearly 500 employees will use the sustainable building for studying, teaching, research and administration.

The building with the eye-catching facade of 400,000 clinker bricks was realized based on the plans of the Berlin architects Karsten Liebner and Marcel Backhaus.
