In politically tense times, it becomes clear how important and essential Democracy is for each individual citizen of a country. One expression of this is the “High House”, in which the elected representatives of the people act.

Save-the-Date for alumni interested in architecture: On August 18, 2022, ImmoABS will organize a tour of Villa Beer (1130 Vienna) before the start of the renovation.
