Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to...

  •  discuss the current trends and social challenges of social housing,
  •  name and differentiate different disciplinary approaches and methods of housing research,
  • compare empirical knowledge from housing practice with research findings,
  • explain the connections between urban development and housing,
  • identify the actors and institutions of Viennese housing,
  • reflect critically on developments in Viennese housing,
  • summarise transdisciplinary discussions.

Subject of course

The lecture series - conceived by the Research Center New Social Housing with Judith M. Lehner, Prof. Simon Güntner, Prof. Michael Obrist, Prof. Rudolf Scheuvens and Prof. Christoph Reinprecht - aims to familiarise students from different fields of study with the complexity of housing research and practice. In view of the current urgent need for innovations in housing construction (e.g. for climate-friendly building, affordability, social justice), monodisciplinary approaches can only provide insufficient solutions. The development of a common understanding of what is considered a problem and the identification of different (professional, practical, everyday, scientific) perspectives in discourse are essential in order to be able to pose, answer and deal with questions around the housing issue by means of transdisciplinary learning processes.

Teaching methods

Within the framework of a lecture series, speakers from the fields of housing research (various Viennese universities) and Viennese housing practice (City of Vienna, property developers, associations, administration,...) are invited to give short lectures on the respective topic. On the basis of two short lectures, each from a research and a practical perspective, a transdisciplinary discussion format on various topics of housing will be created.

Presenters are amongst others Prof. Dragana Damjanovic (TU Wien), Daniel Glaser (MA50), Prof. Arthur Kanonier (TU Wien), Gregor Puscher (wohnfond_wien), Thomas Romm (forschen, planen, bauen), Arno Rabl (wohnpartner), Alexa Färber (Universität Wien), Robert Musil (ÖAW), Robert Temel,...
