Abstract

Retrofitting plans for the 200-year-old timber structure on top of the main building of the Vienna University of Technology (VUT) included a different use of the space underneath the roof's cupola and leaving the ancient timber construction visible. This called for an examination of the quality of the ancient wood material, the development of modern safety concepts for fire and earthquake incidents within the modified use scenario, additional constructional measures to fulfil the requirements of these new concepts and doing an up-to-date structural analysis following the regulations given by the Eurocodes. The combination of up-to-date assessment methods with modern reconstruction techniques facilitated the discovery of a previously hidden space and the creation of a fascinating event location.
