Urban renewal in Vienna is closely associated with areas shaped by the Gründerzeit. However, in the coming years, the further development of existing neighborhoods from the 1950s to the 1970s will become increasingly important.
This requires new approaches that go far beyond structural renewal. Innovative technologies in building renovation, climate-friendly energy systems, sustainable mobility offerings, and comprehensive participation are fields of action that need to be addressed at the neighborhood level. The success of this "new" urban renewal depends not least on a broadly supported development vision.
What are successful innovations in the areas of redevelopment methods, energy generation and use, and mobility offerings? And which of these innovations has reached feasibility limits? How can acceptance for interventions in existing buildings be achieved through dialog and participatory formats? Which actors need to pull together to achieve this?
