The new Campus WU project was launched in 2005 within the academic setting of the Vienna University of Economics and Business. The project culminated in 2013 with the handing over of the finished university complex within its budgetary framework of € 500 Mio. It is the largest University of Economics in the EU with a population of 25,000 students, teachers and staff and is moving into a neighbourhood with approx. 100,000 inhabitants. This is where future generations of, hopefully competent, economists will be trained. It is a strategic example of a star system, employed by the user, which seeks to obtain the necessary funding by awarding the projects to Zaha Hadid Architects, CRABstudio, Carme Pinós, NO.mad, Hitoshi Abe, as well as to the Master Plan winner, Vienna's BUSarchitektur. BUSarchitektur was founded in 1986 in Buenos Aires by Claudio J. Blazica (1956-2002) and Laura P. Spinadel. In Vienna, the architectural firm has been run jointly with Jean Pierre Bolívar & Bernd Pflüger since 2003. The firm's Master Plan for the Mataderos-Buenos Aires won the 1988 Outstanding Artist Award for Experimental Trends in Architecture. Work that began as research for the Compact City project in Vienna won the Otto Wagner Urban Architecture Award. BUSarchitektur has developed master plans for STAR 22, for the densification of the Oberlaa Neu Spa park, for Forum Schönbrunn-Vienna, as well as for the Hoffmann takes a walk-Purkersdorf and for the University of Medicine campus in Graz. BOA office for advanced randomness was established as a collaboration between Laura P. Spinadel and Hubert Marz in order to encourage alternative approaches to the communication and discussion of spaces and urbanities. In 2008 BUS won the Master Plan and General Planning Competition for Campus WU. In addition to designing and planning the Teaching Center, BUS also undertook the open space and parking area projects, while BOA produced all the documentation and communication materials.
