The 25th anniversary of the Donauinsel (Danube Island), which has turned out to be a Viennese success story, offers a suitable occasion for devoting an evening to the planning history of this project. Speakers will include people involved in and responsible for this major project, which was so hotly debated at the time it was planned.
As well as examining the creation of the Donauinsel the discussion will also look at alternative proposals – for instance building on the area – and at current development scenarios.
