The EU project CULBURB deals with the phenomena of suburbanisation in Prague, Budapest, Bratislava, Ljubljana, Warsaw and Vienna. In a response to selected \"districts\" and their surroundings five \"acupuncture treatments\" are carried out in each area. These architectural and artistic interventions work with minimal means to achieve a maximum long term effect. In Vienna the project focuses on the Sandleiten neighbourhood.


Despite the number of spatial, social and historical differences between the areas participating in CULBURB similar situations are encountered in many of them, such as a shortage of common practice.
