Out of 15 young offices that participated in Europan Austria, the Institute of Urban Development selected the sml.wien working group as lecturer for Workshop 3.
In the workshop "Love from Raaba!" we want to treat the territory as an unfinished, diffuse ideal of a city, as "Città Diffusa", as a territory created by our economic, social and legal framework over decades.
During the workshop we will discuss questions of the future of production, work, logistics, mobility, ecology, leisure and housing, of private and public life, of permanence and changeability, against the background of the great social and economic upheavals we are currently experiencing.
In the first phase of the workshop, a spatial and functional overall strategy for Raaba will be developed in close cooperation with the help of references from historical ideal city models. Building on this overall strategy, the students will then work in small groups on designs for smaller subspaces and elements, on the threshold of architectural and urban planning scale.
