An event organised by the Architekturzentrum Wien upon the initiative of the municipal councillor Hannes Swoboda and in cooperation with the Vienna department of city planning.
The main exhibition “architecture + city” on the current building situation in Vienna as the centrefold and starting point of the first Vienna Architecture Festival was accompanied by numerous additional exhibitions, bus tours, congresses, lectures, and events at unconventional places. A temporary pavilion was erected in the courtyard of the Architektur Zentrum (architect Franz E. Kneissl) and served as an information centre and a transparent tribune for more than 40 events.
Visitors who undertook this journey through the city in 80 days – their own but nevertheless foreign city – were confronted not only with the diversity of architectural projects but also by the diversity and inexhaustibility of the topic architecture.
