STRABAG Artcollection

The Artcollection of STRABAG SE

The presence of art gives a company the chance to create a special atmosphere for its staff in company buildings, and ultimately to intensify creativity and productivity. Every time the gaze drifts away from the screen and instead turns toward a contemporary artwork, we look into another world. New ways of seeing open up, horizons are expanded. We are proud to make this experience possible on a daily basis for many of our employees in more than sixty company locations across Europe.

Art and event location

The art and event hall GIRONCOLI - KRISTALL shows nine sculptures by internationally renowned artist BRUNO GIRONCOLI in this first permanent exhibition of his works in Vienna. The monumental objects are made out of polyester and are on permanent loan at STRABAG Kunstforum.

I thought it would be possible to establish a connection between commercial management and artistic expression. The result is presented here. Look and see.
