Review: RESTORE TS5 Successfully held in Vienna in hybrid mode!
JUMP 2030 – “The Good Urban Life”
A Holistic Vision for the Brigittaplatz/Hannovermarkt in the 20th district of Vienna:
16 trainees, 3 international trainers, 3 local trainers, 16 keynotes/speakers, 3 site visits, 1 exhibition, 5 jury members, 1 final presentation and quite a complex topic addressing the challenging future of urban development: Scale Jump, the work title of WG5. Numbers and content that pretty much sum up what the Training School in Vienna aimed to achieve, by launching a pressuring topic about urban renewal of an existing neighbourhood, an implementation of social cultural relations, an inclusion of circular considerations and a reflection of biophilic approaches. In short: Jump 2030 ‘The Good Urban Life’ – A Holistic Vision for the Brigittaplatz/Hannovermarkt in the 20th district of Vienna.
All in all, a process-oriented approximation, which was augmented by topic-related keynotes and to which the selected trainee groups had to react with a strategic project proposal. The latter was showed to a broader audience and jury, receiving a highly valuable feedback on the taken project paths. Finally, a starting point how to perform approaches in a highly interconnected existing urban environment, by considering a broad range of planning-related implications. Challenges that we have to face in the near future and to which the Training School in Vienna hopefully contributed to shape (David Calas)
