Tour of Seestadt: Planning Solutions
This event takes you to Seestadt, one of the world’s most innovative development projects. At the same time it is among the largest urban development projects in Europe. aspern Seestadt is a new, multifunctional urban centre with over 11,500 high-quality housing units (flats for sale and let, serviced apartments, student accommodation, etc.) and generous provision for office space, production facilities and service providers, science and technology, R&D and education. A smart city with a heart, designed to accommodate the whole spectrum of life, with links to the rail stations, airports and centres of the twin cities of Vienna and Bratislava.
After meeting at Seestadt’s metro station, there will be a short overview presentation of the aspern Seestadt. After learning interesting facts about this newly developed urban project, there will be a guided walk through the city, where you will get insights on how the planning of the city comes along with the implementation of gender mainstreaming. For that purpose, you will meet Ms. Dipl.-Ing.in Eva Kail and she will report on her decades-long efforts not only to make Vienna as livable as possible, but also to take gender-sensitive aspects into account when planning public space.
