About this title

Synopsis:

A snapshot of housing. Apart from a few initial texts and interviews, the main text of the book contains a total of 20 home stories and interviews with tenants as well as portraits and snapshots of Lisi Specht. It is mainly about the comparison: What was the concept of the architect? And what is the reality in everyday life inside the realized buildings?

From the Back Cover:

One architect, 20 residential buildings, and 55 people in front of a camera and microphone. Wie wohnen die Wienerinnen und Wiener? Und vor allem: Inwiefern decken sich architektonisches Konzept und gelebter Alltag? Der Architekturjournalist Wojciech Czaja und die Fotografin Lisi Specht werfen gemeinsam einen Blick hinter die Fassaden des geförderten Wiener Wohnbaus und bitten die Mieter und Eigentümerinnen vors Mikrofon. 20 Wohnhäuser des Wiener Architekten Albert Wimmer stehen auf dem Prüfstand und werden aus unterschiedlichen Blickwinkeln beleuchtet – von der Billy-Regal-Tauglichkeit bis zum Funktionieren des sozialen Miteinanders. What are the homes of the Viennese like? And, most importantly, to what degree do the architectural concepts for living space meet the demands of everyday life? Architecture journalist Wojciech Czaja and photographer Lisi Specht take a joint look behind the façades of subsidised housing in Vienna and invite tenants and owners to voice their opinions. 20 residential buildings designed by Viennese architect Albert Wimmer are put to the test and examined from a number of different angles – ranging from their suitability for furniture from a major Swedish furniture chain to the chances and challenges of social togetherness.
