The Seestadt Aspern is being built on an area like Vienna’s historical city centre, designed to be a smart city within a city. By 2030 it will be inhabited by 25,000 residents, offering a similar no of jobs. However, it’s not only the scale that makes it noteworthy, but its innovative, resource-saving and climate-friendly approach to modern urban development. The walk will explore some of the concrete implementations in its most recently finished district as blue infrastructure, green houses and new urban spaces that were initiated by the community, concepts for eco-friendly mobility, as well as different approaches to sustainable buildings.
You will get a look at the world’s second largest timber high rise and the latest addition to the Seestadt’s growing infrastructure allowing it to host great business as well as social and cultural gatherings.
