More and more people are moving to cities, yet the available physical space is limited. In order to maintain or even improve the quality of living for all, the design and use of urban space must be rethought – ideally with the involvement of those who live there. How can we create urban space that is beautiful, sustainable, and collectively designed?
The MuseumsQuartier Wien – which, with its approximately 90,000 square meters and 60 cultural institutions, is already a symbol for coming together – is opening its doors and becoming a true playground, in which new use concepts can be tested in the spirit of climate-neutrality. The participants in the hackathon – innovators, interventionists, creatives, local residents, and other interested individuals – will spend two days addressing subjects such as green spaces, energy-efficiency, and inclusivity as they develop concrete ideas and initial prototypes for a public realm that is designed and used cooperatively. Prize money totaling € 5,000 is waiting for the winners!

Film screening “The New Bauhaus”,: Mon 19.9., 7pm–10 pm
Setting the mood for Impact Hub Vienna’s HACKATHON: public screening of the film “The New Bauhaus”, followed by a panel discussion with the co-producer Ashley Lukasik. “The New Bauhaus” is a cinematic voyage of discovery through the life and legacy of the innovative artist and teacher László Moholy-Nagy (1895–1946), whose pioneering concept for the integration of technology into design is as powerful today as it was in his time.
Award ceremony: Sat 24.9.
Rewarding: The selected idea by the public and the jury will be honored as part of the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK.
