OUT NOW: Future Public Spaces

What is required to renew and articulate public spaces?

The need for, and demands of, public spaces are highly specific to the local spatial and social conditions under which people live. Action at neighborhood level is crucial, and must involve interacting and co-creating with residents to discover their needs. At the start of the pandemic, superwien was commissioned to develop innovative designs for urban public spaces in three different cities: Dhaka (Bangladesh), Maputo (Mozambique), and Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic). The main objective of this applied research was to strengthen the capacity of local governments to undertake participatory urban design processes. This book calls upon architects and urbanists to develop place-based solutions in challenging circumstances.

Every street is interesting, if you hear the stories and meet the people. Roland and Eugene, from SuperWien and Whoosh, will show you this on a tour of their Graetzl.

Zirkusgasse is not a well-known street, but it has so much to offer. We will make a sociological, historical, political, artistic and playful walk along a not-so-long and not-so-boring part of Leopoldstadt. 
Why is it called Zirkusgasse? Who lives here? Why did we send our kids to schools on the street? What does it mean to live in Jewish Vienna, in hipster Wien, in a district with so many sex shops? Who lives here? Why is the street completely grey-coloured?

Since we are both urbanists, we look at architecture, placemaking, parklets, ecology, and people. How could the street be improved? A better Bezirksvorsteher would be one of Eugene’s first wishes. And Renz was once the coolest place to hang out in our city, so we explore what it meant, and where it went.

Also: Why do we need to urgently change the name of the Second District? How is the latest redevelopment of Praterstern going? Why is Prater Strasse not being updated, despite all the proposals? Why was the first ever pop-up cycle lane here?

Die Stadt räumlich programmieren

Interview mit Architekt Stefan Mayr

Von Stefan Mayr und Roland Krebs wurde 2010 in Wien ihr Büro superwien urbanism gegründet. Dabei beschäftigen sie sich vor allem mit Städtebau und nachhaltiger Architektur. Die Projektbereiche umfassen großmaßstäbliche Aufgabenstellungen, genauso wie kleinmaßstäbliche. Sie reichen von Metropolenplanung und Wohnbau über Erdgeschosszonen-Strategien, hin zu Beteiligungsprozessen und Place­making. Angesiedelt sind ihre Projekte in Österreich, Südosteuropa, Zentralasien und Lateinamerika.

2. Platz beim Kooperativen Verfahren in Berlin

Das Projekt “Mitten in Tempelhof” erhält den 2. Platz. Parallel sowie in Austausch mit drei weiteren Teams aus dem Bereich Städtebau und Landschaftsplanung hat Superwien Urbanism in Kooperation mit Siri Frech und IPG einen städtebaulich-freiraumplanerischen Entwurf für die „Neue Mitte Tempelhof“ entwickelt. Im Rahmen von vier Werkstätten vor Ort bzw. digital wurden im letzten Jahr die Entwürfe mit den AuftraggeberInnen, den Planungsteams, FachexpertInnen sowie unter Einbeziehung der BürgerInnen und lokalen AkteurInnen diskutiert und präzisiert.
