DEPARTURE TOUR 1: ARCHITECTURE IN FOCUS
Tu 3.10.2017, 4–6pm
In cooperation with the Vienna Business Agency, ARCH ON TOUR together with Markus Steinbichler (Gebietsbetreuung Stadterneuerung) leads the way in a versatile local tour through the southern part of the 15th district. The walk starts out at the Festival Headquarters South, a former branch of the Zentralsparkasse remodeled between 1970 and 1974 by Johann Georg Gsteu. The route moves in a northerly direction as far as the Meiselmarkt. It is rich in variation, showing new developments in urban construction and the architectural trends in this up-and-coming urban region. The tour seeks out redevelopment properties, also co-working spaces in a former steel storage facility, intelligent open space design, smart interiors of new restaurants, and surprises with impressive urban perspectives. These include the overwhelming view from the Rustensteg – the old footbridge across the Western Railway tracks – all the way to the Gloriette.
