What does it mean to occupy a building temporarily and to organize and plan a festival?
It often isn’t apparent to outsiders just how much work has to be carried out and how many official procedures and surprises have to be dealt with by the team of the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK during the realization of such an event. Alexandra Brückner, project manager, whisperer in the ear of the statutory authorities, and the person responsible for the Festival Headquarters offers this tour of the building and its annex, the Solarium, and shares the inside story. Every sticker, wall surface and exhibit has been designed in detail and approved in advance. The exhibition and graphic design are readapted for each edition of the festival in order to breathe new life into an otherwise empty building. This process may be a challenge every year, but it will certainly never be boring!
