Biologiezentrum of the University of Vienna

Mark Dion designed a vivarium resembling a greenhouse for the foyer of the Biologiezentrum. The vivarium contains a tree trunk that was removed from the ecosystem of the construction site and inserted into the university context. It represents a link between inside and outside, between the past of the urban environment and the present of the scientific institution, and also serves as an identifier of this modern biology research centre.
