A joint presentation of the MAK FUTURE LAB and the Vienna Holding
Collaborative building and living has long been a regular aspect of Viennese life. In numerous urban developments, people’s
individual needs and desires as regards their living space can be realized within the framework of cooperative building projects.
On the site of the former slaughterhouse in the 3rd district, now metamorphosed into the future-oriented location Neu Marx,
this approach is being widened to include creating workspaces within building cooperatives.
A fishbowl discussion attended by experts explored the topic of commercial building cooperatives in Neu Marx. It investigated
the question of how we will structure our work environments together in future.
