The key task for the local coordinators is familiarizing residents with their neighbourhoods. To stimulate activity by promoting neighbourly relations and bringing interested parties to the table on the basis of projects in public space.
In the Simmering Schneiderviertel (Lit. Tailors Quarter) a street was transformed for a day by GBstern11 into a public space for experimentation.
In collaboration with GBstern9 and GBstern17/18 the architects heri&salli erected a vast public table in a tram station as a performance venue.
