Mr and Mrs Gardener

Date: Wed, Jun 20, 18:00
Venue: Architekturzentrum, Podium
Free admission

The image of the allotment garden today is hotly contested. Prejudices clash with each other: petit-bourgeois idyll, standardised aesthetic, anarchic self-fulfilment, the new delight in greenery but also the rediscovery of self-sufficiency. In Vienna it has been permitted since 1992 to live the entire year in such allotment garden complexes - an Eldorado for young architects and wildly rampant do-it-yourself aesthetics. It is now time to take stock of the current situation.
