2023–2024 Circular Economy and Building Culture

Supervision and organisation of the fifth thematic working group on circular economy and building culture, which was set up to implement the building culture programme of the City of Vienna. Implementation is done through working groups, each active for about one to one and a half years – the first working group was dedicated to education from 2014 to 2016, followed by climate in 2017 to 2018 as the second, then safety in 2018 to 2019, and art in 2020 to 2023, delayed by Covid-19.

The project is a continuation of the development of the City of Vienna’s building culture program. Now the topic of circular economy, which is extremely relevant and topical for the building sector, is being considered – the main focus is on what this can mean for the actions of the municipality. The spectrum of aspects to be discussed ranges from adaptive reuse and materiality to questions of regulation.
