Visions of Cable Cars by heri&salli

The architectural studio heri&salli from Vienna was engaged by the Vienna Museum of Technology to work out different kinds of ideas regarding future possibilities to construct cable cars. Hence, a series of 17 hand‐drawings, retaining different ideas was created. Each of these 17 drawings was done with a pencil on paper with the dimensions 100/70cm.

The cable car connection is dissolved from the general idealised connecting parameters, the cable cars become content and carrier of the intermediate area of a urban context

They interpret the cable car not only as an idealised connecting element between two places but on the one hand as a spatial benefit for its environment. This benefit can be reached with the dissolution of the defined start and goal. On the other hand, maybe they can turn into the content and carrier of the intermediate area of an urban surrounding. The place of the cable car is not anymore a place but the possibility of a stay in the landscape.

Then again, the formulation treats the question how far the cable car itself can be seen under a different light. Maybe it is reduced to its necessity, so that the interior space is seen as amplified exterior space. Alternatively, it can be interpreted as spatial benefit. The stay in the cable car is no longer temporary but stationary. Benefit space as attractive living space in the urban context.

Finally, six selected works can be visited from June 2016 onwards in the Vienna Museum of Technology. They show and summarise our formulated possibilities of visions of cable cars.

The connection is not limited to the horizontality also verticality is developed. The space in its entirety can be visited individually.

The cable car as a spatial benefit, the stay in the cable car is not anymore temporary but stationary. Space with added value as attractive living space in the urban context

Traveling Around
There is no defined objective; the objective is the movement per se. The landscape is defined as carrier of this movement

Home Cable Car
The energy freed by the actuation of the home cable car is used as propulsion for the cable car itself, if it is not used, there is no propulsion

The connection of the cable car can be adjusted to spatial and climatic conditions. The place is not the place but the possibility of a stay

If the cable car is used, conceived as room island, the sky is not the horizon, but the movement of the horizon itself is the dream of this island.
