As part of the IBA ResearchLab 2020 Summer School filmmakers Frank Hagen and Miae Son went to Vienna in search of local projects and initiatives that contribute to finding solutions for the consequences of climate change (such as urban heat or heavy rain).
The films were presented at a digital vernissage on January 18. Together with the filmmakers, the IBA ResearchLab invited them to discuss the possibilities of innovative approaches and approaches to urban development and housing.
The result is six portraits of initiatives that vary greatly in their approach, size and scope: from bottom-up projects such as a green roof with moss organized by house residents themselves to urban development projects such as Biotope City at the southern gateway to the city. The films show how diverse environmentally and climate-friendly local approaches are, which possibilities and forms of environmental commitment are practiced by individuals and groups, and how they can network.
