The MQ Dragonfly touches down
In spring 2020, the most beautiful cultural terrace in Vienna opens on the roof of the Leopold Museum. With free entry, MQ Dragonfly offers a view over the centre of the city to the Vienna mountains. Visitors are right above, yet right in the middle of the lively events taking place at the largest cultural complex in Europe. Named after its dragonfly shape, the space was designed by the architects Laurids and Manfred Ortner, who realised the MuseumsQuartier site in its current form at the end of the 1990s. MQ Dragonfly represents the creation of a new space for art and cultural projects over the rooftops of Vienna. Two of Austria's most important artists have designed the central elements of the terrace and building. Eva Schlegel has designed MQ Dragonfly's glass wall, while Brigitte Kowanz has created the iconic lighting fixtures on the terrace.
