a cooperation by the faculty for urban development at Vienna University of Technology with the Az W


Date: Wed, Nov 30, 19:00
Venue: Architekturzentrum Wien - Podium
Free admission


In recent decades an analysis of the architectural heritage of the industrial era has increasingly become a task for planners: in the course of structural change, industrial sites and residential areas have developed into empty spaces that cannot be neglected because of their dimensions within the urban fabric. Innovative new interpretations of such relics are to be observed throughout Europe - for instance in the case of the Toni grounds in Zurich, or the Île de Nantes. The book urbanRESET contains a collection of examples of this category of urban work from all over Europe: theoretical interviews with key proponents and introductions to projects show how local reactivations can have a sustainable impact. The common basis of these works is condensed to provide methodical conclusions for an urban practise for the future.
