Architekturtage 2008

It is that time of year again, and for the fourth time the Architekturtage (Architecture Days) are being held all over Austria, on 16 and 17 May 2008! Under the motto ‘Experience Architecture — Admission Free’ the Az W is opening its two current exhibitions ‘a_show. Austrian Architecture in the 20th and 21st Centuries’ and ‘The White City of Tel Aviv. Tel Aviv’s Modern Movement’ to all those interested in architecture and the art of building on these two days, from 10am till 7pm.

Two workshops during the ‘Architekturtage’ are also offering admission free insights for kids interested in architecture.

Bridging the Gap

Fri 16.05.2008, 3pm – 5pm, admission free
for kids aged 6 to 12
Arch bridges, chain bridges, suspension bridges, hanging bridges, cable stayed bridges — find out more about the construction and history of these key feats of civil engineering at the Architekturzentrum Wien. Equiped with tape measure, spirit level and other tools we build our own bridge on a scale of 1:1.
We test its load-bearing capacity over water.

Living in Space

Sat 17.05.2008, 3pm – 5pm, admission free
for kids aged 6 to 12
We study the difference between single-family houses, terraced houses, apartment buildings or tower blocks, and the things that influence us when we’re looking for a new home. Then we develop a space-age housing model anno 3333. It’s up to you to decide whether you want to live in outer space, on Mars, or somewhere else in the future.
