Beyond Shelter: Creating Inclusive Living Space

Location: Architekturzentrum Wien

For the past two years the focus has been on emergency accommodation. However what is to follow and what contribution can architects make to the social integration of refugees?

The discussion in the evening pursues the question of how architectural concepts can go beyond the creation of temporary solutions and successfully contribute to long-term inclusion. Under discussion are the prevailing conditions in the housing market, spatial strategies and political concepts, while spotlighting successful initiatives from Europe.

A cooperation by the Architekturzentrum Wien with Architektur ohne Grenzen Austria (AoGA)
