A Neighborhood for Life

>> The planned neighborhood is characterised by its openness for cross-site concepts. The support of self-determination and self-organisation of the future residents leads to the development of the whole area. <<

Ingrid Breckner, Member of the Advisory Board of the IBA


The tender of the developers’ competition Berresgasse was published by wohnfonds_wien on 24 May 2018. This competition procedure is the largest in the over 25-year history of developers’ competitions in Vienna. For the IBA_Vienna, this special challenge was an opportunity for breaking new ground together with wohnfonds_wien in the preparation of a developers’ competition. In this cooperative process an attempt was made in order to transfer the qualities of the Urban Development Framework Plan to the tender of the competition. This was supported by nonconform and the study they made on the area. The central element of this process was a “Development Workshop” with all stakeholders involved. Furthermore, the IBA_Vienna has formulated three aspects for the competition, where special attention should be paid: a lively ground floor, neighborship and identity.

Developing and populating a neighborhood of this size needs to be understood as social processes. Here, the IBA_Vienna aims to stimulate the reseacrh of the needs of the existing neighborhood while at the same time taking into account the inner diversity of the new urban area. A stakeholder analysis commissioned by the IBA_Vienna and conducted by nonconform provides inspiration. Close cooperation and constant exchange with the local area management of the Vienna Urban Renewal Office contributes to the direct flow of information: With the help of the IBA_Vienna, the wishes, suggestions and ideas of the residents and enquiries from businesses reach the developers and planners directly.

With the aim of developing a sustainable, community-promoting neighborhood, the IBA_Vienna accompanies and supports innovative concepts for the individual building projects in Berresgasse, which are intended to have an impact beyond the building itself and into the neighborhood. Neighborly relations and lively neighborhoods are established above all through a large number of small measures. The IBA_Vienna organizes workshops to support the agreement of property developers and future users on the ground floor zone in order to sharpen the interfaces. In addition to retail, this also affects one-person and small businesses, artists and cultural workers, and many more.
