14. Wiener Architektur Kongress. Bauen für eine bessere Welt

A key point on the programme of the Architekturzentrum Wien is the consideration of the social aspect of architecture and the complex interdisciplinary demands made on planners and architects beyond the widely used cliché of star architects and their artistic icons. The 14th Vienna Architecture Congress places sustainable planning and building in its social, economic environmental and political context as a basis for discussion.



Gareth Jones devotes his essay “Monsters in the Closet” to the aestheticization of poverty and slums in the form of amusement parks. Andrea Rieger-Jandl illuminates the cultural and social aspects of translocal architecture in her essay “Grenzenlos Bauen”.
