THE NORDKETTE CABLEWAY STATIONS, INNSBRUCK
The Nordkette Cableway is an important pioneering achievement of Alpine architecture. Its uniqueness lies in the integration of the superb architecture with the magnificent scenery, creating a symbiotic artistic entity. The greatest care was taken in the necessary technological renovation to remain sympathetic to the original intent. The reworking and restoration of the exteriors and interiors are an impressive example of adaptation of Alpine architectural heritage from the 1920's. The project highlights a specific and new theme in the field of heritage preservation.
