This publication is the result of a joint effort by the research team of the University of Applied Art of Vienna and the City Department for Architecture and Urban Development.
The research is an in-depth analysis of the urban and social conditions of a low-income residential neighborhood located in between Danube and an area which in recent years has been subject of intense gentrification processes.
The methodologies employed in the analysis help framing a clear and multi-layered picture of the current state of the area, by looking in detail into the urban fabric and the infrastructure serving this part of town, as well as documenting through interviews and pictures the personal perception of the inhabitants.
Possibilities for actions and further investigation are pinpointed throughout the publication and are presented by a rich visual language.
