The central incentive for Wiener Wohnen in cooperation with the IBA was to fulfill the wish of many residents for attractive new and intergenerational meeting places. To this end, new meeting places were created - such as the community garden in the neighborhood center, the multigenerational square, and the Bergtaidingweg promenade. The AALbin project also opens up digital space and all its possibilities to senior citizens.
By means of participatory, intergenerational care and community work - such as the "Heimspiel" project with the multigenerational festival, the construction of the community garden together with residents, the artistic design of passageways in apartment buildings, the development of street play pictograms on Bergtaidingweg with children and young people, or the youth bus lab "Ich brauche Platz!" (I need space) - the use of these new meeting spaces was activated and socially revitalized.
Through the active co-design of the living and residential environment, the participatory personal relationship to it increases, as a result of which it is handled more carefully. The direct involvement of residents and local infrastructure in the process of developing and implementing measures through targeted information and communication work on site proved to be a decisive aspect for the successful upgrading of the PAHO.
In the Per-Albin-Hansson-Siedlung Ost, intergenerational participatory measures were implemented to strengthen the neighborhood, which will be presented in this talk.
