We are urbanists. We live in Vienna. So we started this blog to write about urban development in Vienna from a critical perspective. We write on events in and around Vienna, link to current newspaper articles, videos or public debates and write own articles, opinions and comments on and about urbanism and Vienna. We strive to provide an inter-disciplinary platform for critical discussion and exchange on Vienna’s urban development. If you are interested in joining our blogger collective, contribute a piece or react to our articles feel free to contact us.

We cover a range of topics, but are currently focusing particularly on housing, gentrification, urban politics, participation, urban mobility, Right to the City, urban social movements, vacant spaces, urban mobility, migration, segregation, urban inequality, and more…
