2013 Exhibition and workshop Gemeinschaftliches Wohnen hat Zukunft! Baugruppen und mehr

Exhibition and workshop on Gemeinschaftliches Wohnen hat Zukunft! Baugruppen und mehr (Community living is the future! Building cooperatives and more), together with Raimund Gutmann, wohnbund:consult, on 15 March 2013 as part of the Wohnbaufestwochen (Housing festival) of the City of Vienna.
The Community building day shows the development and today’s situation of ways of community living in Vienna, from radically self-organized building cooperatives to low-threshold projects.
Central questions were what types of community housing exist, in what forms they are realized, how far the development already went and what their relevance for the city as a whole is. The event focused on disseminating the principle of community housing in its concrete forms existing in Vienna and on a representation of its situation in Vienna. The spectrum of projects ranges from the integration of groups into „conventional“ housing projects to participatory projects and, finally, building cooperatives.
At the start of the evening, a double lecture on forms of community housing was held by Raimund Gutmann and Robert Temel. After that, a panel discussion on „How do you make it: Community housing“ with (partly future) inhabitants of such projects took place. During the whole event a project fair and an exhibition of realized projects inVienna was shown.
