Design Principal: Wolf D. Prix / Design Partner: Karolin Schmidbaur
Project Team: Morteza Dehkordi, Shima Roshanzamir, Levent Ozruh
As a proposal for one of Vienna’s regenerating areas, the key theme embodied in Fair City Wien is urban farming. This is to be achieved by the cyclical nature of its overall program. The food is to be produced both privately (apartments) & commercially (highlighted roof). The duality is also evident in the distribution process of it; either directly from the market on entrance level or outside the scope of its site to rest of Vienna & Austria.and planet Earth, the in-situ material reutilisation aims for minimum material transport from Earth.
