The exhibition 9=12. New Housing in Vienna presents the results of an experimental collaboration between architects from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the building industry and developers. 9=12. New Housing in Vienna illustrates a concept for a model housing development in Hütteldorf am Mauerbach (Vienna) that promises to set new standards in the area of subsidised housing.

“All of the basic requirements have been met for a Werkbundsiedlung, for a pilot project, for the future of housing with exemplary and enduring architecture.” Dietmar Steiner

On the basis of the masterplan by Adolf Krischanitz 12 buildings. each containing three to four units were designed. The project is innovative both in urban terms and as regards housing typology. As a modell it suggests a direction for denser but yet free- standing housing types. Landscape architect Anna Detzlhofer has developed a conceot for the external green space that provides a cohesive setting for the 12 differently interpreted volumes.
