Event Information

Dublin City Council and the Housing Agency present  ‘The Vienna Model: Housing for the 21st Century’ exhibition and associated Seminars.

The full programme can be downloaded HERE.

The Dublin Housing Observatory in collaboration with the Housing Agency have organised a number of seminars and events. These will run alongside the main exhibition across three different venues in Dublin during April 2019. The aim of this programme is to introduce and promote the Vienna Model of public housing in order to help inform and support the wider debate on all our housing futures in Dublin and nationally.

The Viennese model of housing has long been a pioneer in the global pursuit of new strategies for the design and implementation of forward-thinking urban developments and ways of living. The Exhibition shines the spotlight on sixty prototypical Viennese projects from the last hundred years, with a special focus on the public art that has complemented Vienna’s housing since the First Republic.

The Vienna Model of housing is internationally regarded for its continued achievement of sustainable, high quality residential development using a cost-rental approach that in effect delivers housing for all. It does this by adopting a general needs approach to housing provision and delivering secure, long-term, high-quality and innovative public rental housing in well designed, adaptable and inclusive neighbourhoods.
