Hafengebäude “Die Welle”
Architects Wolfgang Ritsch, Nägele Waibel, Bruno Spagolla
Passenger shipping was moving closer to the city centre, and so a new harbour building was needed. In addition, Bregenz had always lacked an attractively designed café right on the water side. "The Wave" combines both functions, fits perfectly into the complex of large buildings on Seestrasse and, with its automatically opening and closing glass front, provides a softer response in size and shape to the glass cube. In any case, in the Wave, far away from the noise of the traffic at last, you can sit exactly where the sun looks most beautiful at sunset.
