Vienna has developed an impressive tradition of building functional and at the same time livable public houing. The City’s housing design policy has broadened over the years to embrace fresh ideas and new aspects for improving the quality of life.

A comprehensive survey of urban housing design in Vienna from its beginnings to the present, the exhibit, curated by the Architekturzentrum Wien and designed by SPAN-architekten, features both public housing projects and for-profit ventures.

The exhibition is scheduled to open to the public with a reception hosted by Werner Faymann, Executive City Councilor for Housing, Housing Construction, and Urban Renewal of the City of Vienna.

Opening reception |
October 23, 2003 from 6 pm to 8 pm

Opening hours |
Monday through Saturday, 10 am to 6 pm

Free admission.

The exhibit has been made possible with the support by the Department for Housing, Housing Construction and Urban Renewal.
