An important focus of the IBA_Vienna is on public exchange about current questions in the areas of housing, housing construction, urban planning and social interactions as well as new challenges, while discussion about the related approaches to solutions, ideas and innovations represents a further main focus.

The IBA Talks will therefore take place over the entire duration of the IBA_Vienna. Since Vienna decided to make the IBA process very transparent to the public from the very beginning, parts of the actual "preliminary phase" were also carried out in the context of IBA-Talks.

IBA Talks are regularly documented and are also available for download (PDF) and as video recordings.


Please note, most of our events are held and documented in german.
