Concrete barbecues in Austria
The "Donauinsel" (Danube Island) was built 25 years ago as part of a flood protection system for the city of Vienna. Since then it has developed into one of the most popular recreation areas and offers many different zones for sports, gastronomy and relaxing.
Along its length of 21 km there you can find a number of barbecue stations which can be booked by the public. Nowadays these stations have to be renewed and the municipal authorities therefore organized the Concrete Design Award "BARBECUE EDITION 25“ in cooperation with the Austrian associations of the cement and concrete industries. The Award was open to students of Austrian universities as well as senior design or technical colleges. The projects DONAUGRILL and GRILLMAXX together became second,the winner was the project DONAUWELLE, presented by Benjamin KROMOSER and Martin RITT from the Vienna University of Technology. After the decision by a high-ranking jury these best three projects had to undergo a facebook voting. In this the winner DONAUWELLE was confirmed by public opinion and therefore will now be realized in the near future.
