voestalpine wing - The gate to the Red Bull Ring

By Matthias Loinig,

To mark the return of the Austrian Grand Prix to the Formula 1 calendar this June, voestalpine AG and Projekt Spielberg are cooperating closely to create a new architectural highlight and Welcome Center at the Red Bull Ring: the voestalpine wing.

With its modern architecture the voestalpine wing unifies the emotions of motor racing and the fascination for innovation and technology. Positioned directly beside the start/finishing straight, the building is the central focus for all activities at the Red Bull Ring. During Formula 1 racing it serves as the media center for 500 press representatives whose reports on the event are broadcast from here to 186 countries worldwide.

The voestalpine wing is the Red Bull Ring’s architectural landmark and the dominating feature on the start/finishing straight. The design of the voestalpine wing was inspired by a racing car spoiler. Just like spoilers, the building will be subjected to enormous forces, needing to withstand wind loads of up to 56 tons.

It is only by using steel as a construction material that this architectural form could be realized, and almost 900 tons of steel were used in its construction. The voestalpine wing successfully symbolizes the values of innovative strength, dynamism and a clear focus on the future.

voestalpine has approximately 8,000 employees working at 13 sites in Styria, contributing significant value to the region.

The mobility sector is a promising market in which the Group currently generates 44 percent of its revenue. voestalpine supplies high quality products to the automotive sector which are used for both serial production vehicles as well as international motor racing.
