The opening evening is dedicated to modern housing and city models. How do people live today in the Werkbundsiedlung housing estate in Vienna? And what became of the ideals of a group of architects aiming to transform postwar London into a more socially equitable city?

Forms in Relation to Life / Die Wiener Werkbundsiedlung, AT 2014, 60:00 mins. OV with subtitles, Dir: Heidrun Holzfeind

The Internationale Werkbundsiedlung Wien was completed in 1932 as a small-scale alternative to the municipal housing blocks of Red Vienna. Heidrun Holzfeind shows a portrait of the compact buildings in a green setting and their occupants.

Utopia London, UK 2010, 82:00 mins., OV (in English), Dir: Tom Cordell

There was a time when the vision of a better future formed in London: young planners combined science and art to create a city worth living in. Inspired by their optimism, the question we are facing today is: Where to now?
