Public Space — Congress Tour

in English
max. 30 participants

An architecture guided tour of current projects in Vienna provides a focus on the subject of public space, and an exclusive prelude to the 18th Vienna Architecture Congress. The tour leads to the Bahnorama viewing tower on the construction site for the new Vienna Südbahnhof, giving participants an overview of the ongoing transformation and redefinition of this urban space. Then the tour continues to the Schiffstation Wien City, the recent completion of which has brought new vitality to the banks of the Vienna Donaukanal. Back at the Architekturzentrum Wien a guided tour of the exhibition ‘Platz da! European Public Urban Space’ by the curator provides a deeper insight into the topic.
