Aim of course


We are developing a utopian city for 2068 around the Vienna Airport City.

Climatic, technical, social and geopolitical developments are transforming the Vienna Airport City from an exclave serving Vienna into an autonomous city. The task is to create an idear for this extremely dense, tightly networked city, in a future in which the hubs and conurbations are now more closely connected and competing than ever before.

Subject of course

The futuristic city is concentrated in a diameter of 400m on the area of the Vienna Airport City. 100,000 people are intended to live and work here. New forms of living together pose major challenges for the city. Digitalisation, networking and communication are the subjects that will decisively influence our lives. Self-sufficiency, self-administration, self-organisation are the challenges that the 21st century poses for us. The dissolution of personal and local relationship networks together with the concentration of spatial and time-related networks is reorganising our spaces and our relationship networks.

Based on the analysis of dense spatial structures of the city and their elements, you will develop a spatial structure that organises work, living and culture in a very concentrated space. Using a building unit you will develop selected areas down to the smallest detail of a spatial area. The design work is structured in sections and passes through all scales. Accompanying the task, you will be supported in the “Graphic Design” lecture with the development of representations and layouts.

Additional information

Airport City 2068 competition

The Department of Spatial and Sustainable Design at the Institute of Architecture and Design, TU Wien, is organising the Airport City 2068 competition. Prizes will be awarded to students’ works which will have been produced as part of several lectures in the study year 2018/19 at the TU Wien. 

Participation in the design is the precondition for the submission to the competition. Prize money to the overall amount of €3,000 will be awarded.

Further information on contents, procedure and application can be found under the project Airport City 2068 competition.
