Multigenerational festival

Per-Albin-Hansson-Siedlung, Per-Albin-Hansson-Siedlung Ost, 1100 Wien

In the course of the IBA pilot project "Home Game" (June - October 2021), the focus was placed on the communal increased use of the public green space and the creation of new meeting spaces for residents. At a communal "multigenerational festival" on 01.09.2021, the focus was not only on children, but also on senior citizens and the intergenerational coming together, playing and chatting:

The green space at the corner of Bergtaidingweg and Ada-Christen-Gasse ("Home Game arena 1") was used one afternoon for young and old - with parachute games, bowling, boccia and music. The participating children of the Home Game project and residents of the nearby Kuratorium Wiener Pensionisten-Wohnhäuser Haus Laaerberg got to know each other, celebrated extensively, kicked and played together.

In the summer of 2022, an intergenerational program will once again be offered - in addition, a fixed infrastructure will be created to sustainably enable and consolidate encounters between young and old. Thus, even after the IBA_Vienna, a place will exist in the future at the access to the Bergtaidingweg where different generations can come together, get to know each other better and develop more understanding for each other's needs.

Home game in PAHO

Wiener Wohnen and SOS Kinderdorf Wien started the home game in PAHO in summer 2021: Together with sports teachers, parents and neighbours, space was created for girls and boys from 4 to 10 years old to play and do sports.


How can a large urban settlement from the 1970s be made fit for the future and adapted to today's housing needs? This is the central question that the IBA_Vienna addressed in the Per-Albin-Hansson-Siedlung Ost (PAHO) neighborhood.
