The VIENNA INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL “TRANSFORMATIONS OF LARGE SCALE HOUSING” offers an opportunity for inter- and transdisciplinary exchange for all participants.

Closely linked to the IBA (Internationale Bauausstellung), the ResearchLab New Social Housing aims to create a context that enriches institutional networking and interdisciplinary cooperation, a stronger basic-research orientation, and international visibility. Over and above the theoretical/scientific discourse, it will stimulate and advance the general discussion about the future of social housing. The ResearchLab New Social Housing is organized in the form of annual summer schools with the active integration of internationally renowned scholars.

Selected results will be exhibited as part of the concluding presentation of the IBA_Wien in 2022 and in an international conference
