aspern Az W
The Birth of a Town

Date: Wed, Nov 4, 7 pm
Az W, Podium
Admission free!


Aspern or Die Seestadt Wien (Vienna\'s Urban Laketown) is the largest urban expansion project in Vienna - a former airfield with an area of 240 hectares, i.e. the combined size of the 7th and 8th Districts of the city. The development zone in the north-east represents a new town with its mix of uses comprising commerce, jobs, recreation and private life. What marks the founding of a town in the 3rd millennium? In the face of this mega-project, the series of events aspern Az W is intended to convey the idea of the \'citylab\', and promote broad communication between experts and an interested public in a context of urban planning for the future.
