In the context of the City of the Future thematic workshop: "Digital Building Industry - Innovative Process and Organizational Cultures for the Digital Future" the project M-DAB has been presented. The project dealt with the qualitative and quantitative analysis and recording, as well as digitization and spatial visualization of material quantities in Vienna's building stock. The project focused on the simulation of material flows (through demolition and new construction) in order to show recycling possibilities and to make them technically accessible and usable. The interdisciplinary project consortium led by the Simlab, opens an external URL in a new window consists of researchers and practitioners from the disciplines of spatial planning, architecture, civil engineering (with a focus on materials and waste management) and computer science.
