Mobiles Stadtlabor @ Resselpark

The „mobile Stadtlabor“ of the Faculty of Architecture and Planning at the Vienna University of Technology is a mobile space for seminars, lectures, exhibitions, international research colloquia and workshops in the context of urban planning and architecture. The laboratory was designed and built in a collective design process by 30 students during a Design- Build studio at the Department of Architecture and Design.

As a display and satellite of the faculty, the „Stadtlabor“ served in the Resselpark, in front of the univrsity, as a public auditorium and space dedicated to study and research for 2 years, from october 2013 until september 2015. Afterwards it was moved to the urban development site "Neu Marx", where it now serves as the homebase of the current design-build project OPENmarx. .

The „mobile Stadtlabor“ is part of a platform for experimental and transdisciplinary research and teaching of the Faculty for Architecture and Planning – the urban future.lab. Transparency and participation of students on the research benefi ts as well as opening up a dialogue between space-related sciences, the planning practice and the diversifi ed publicity set out important concerns of the urban future.lab.
