SYMPOSIUM: aspern INTERNATIONAL. Presentation of the Designs
© Nikolaus Summer

A cooperation by the Architekturzentrum Wien with Wien 3420 aspern development AG for the Vienna Biennale 2015: Ideas for Change

An experiment that signals a shift towards participation, co-determination and a democratisation of the city: each architects office presents its project at a public symposium, facing questions and comments from the jury, their colleagues and an interested audience. These discussions ultimately form the basis for the jury’s decision.

Language of the symposium is English.
