VIENNESE HOUSING CULTURE // Photography
Vienna’s urban area distinguishes itself from other European cities in 2 significant ways:
On the one hand Vienna features uncountable social housings that originate from the housing programs by the „Red-Vienna“ policies starting in the year 1923. On the other hand there are numerous garden plots that provide the Viennese people with the possibility of all-the-year accommodation since 1992 - characteristics that emerge from the shortage of food and housing at the end of the 19th century. Through coping with this lack of housing possibilities, there was a development of two forms of housing that are an integral part of the city up to this day.
