Festival Headquarters

Ready, steady, go … For many people, the festival starts with a visit to the headquarters. There are good reasons why this is regarded as the festival’s architectural centerpiece, as a meeting point for visitors, and as the gateway to the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK. This year, there are three such portals – the GASSE, the GEWÖLBE, and the GSTÄTTN: three rarely accessible spaces spread across the Focus District Mariahilf that Austria’s largest curated design festival is opening to the public – spaces in which and from which design can be experienced. So, come on, step right in! Admission is free!
