IBA_VIENNA – NEW SOCIAL HOUSING
International Building Exhibition
The IBA_Vienna 2022 is the first of its kind to be launched in Vienna. By organizing an International Building Exhibition (IBA), Vienna aims at developing proposals for future oriented solutions and approaches that are on the level of the challenges of our time.
The focus lays on “New Social Housing”. Everyday patterns related to ways of acting and procedures are to be reflected in order to evaluated how much they are still up-to and if they are still accurate and eventually they will be renegotiated. Instruments and strategies in the areas of urban, housing and social policies will be interlinked in a new way. The IBA_Vienna will therefore pay its attentions to projects in new building areas as well as in the existing urban network which will also contribute to the social cohesion in the city.
We wish you happy holidays and a happy new year!Lots of things happened in the last year!
