Vienna is "world champion in living quality". According to international ratings, not only does affordability play a decisive role but the complete living environment. How do the Viennese themselves see this? The "the way we live" project is being launched as a collective experiment. New neighbourhoods, apartments, people and perspectives await the participants.

 

Who has lived on an allotment estate? How does it feel to live in a loft, high above the roofs of Vienna? And, haven’t you always wanted to know what the famous Vienna municipal housing looks like from the inside?

If you want to participate in “the way we live” , you can make your viennese apartment available for two days (Sat 21.09./Sun 22.09.) in order to switch to a different, unfamiliar lifestyle. A toolbox with a diversity of research aims helps to sharpen one’s own awareness and to explore possible ways of living. Participation is open to everyone and free of charge, paid for with the currency of “trust’.

“The way we live” begins with blind dates, when many people unknown to each other handover their keys at the Architekturzentrum Wien. Accompanied by the Mies.Magazin architecture film team and equipped with useful information, participants then swarm out to begin their research. When the keys are returned to their owners on Sunday afternoon, everyone swaps experiences with cocktails and music. The collected findings will be presented to the public at a film screening in November.

Join in, contribute your knowledge and become part of a collective living experiment in your own hometown!

Project organisation: Lene Benz
