Vienna 2003: It looks as if the collective subconscious of this city has suddenly managed to come up with a vision. As happened about ten years ago when a new Gründerzeit was declared in Vienna, today we once again find ourselves in a situation where an enormous number and diversity of projects of varying standards are being planned that will have far reaching effects in terms of urban development, and so which are forming the future face of this city.

Projects have primarily been selected that provide the most varied of functions in the areas of infrastructure, service, events and culture with a potential to act as strong magnets for their respective urban environments.
Some of these projects have been proposals for a long time, others are new and largely unknown. This survey is, for the first time, to provide an opportunity to grasp the full extent of these projects. For only then can one appreciate the full daunting extent of the pending urban development of Vienna over the next few years.
