The MOVE.Walks course
As already explained in the last three posts, this summer semester a new MOVE course format has been introduced, the so-called MOVE.Walks. Accompanied by experts from different fields such as politics, planning, administration, etc., the students explore different corners of Vienna and can ask them about their work and urban / mobility planning topics.
MOVE.Walk 4 | Influence of the built environment on our mobility behaviour, spatial perception
The walk started at Hausfeldstraße (underground station), opens an external URL in a new window in Vienna's 22nd district. This time, the focus was on how the built environment influences our mobility behaviour and how spatial perception differs depending on location.
This time the student group, MOVE colleagues Martin Berger, Florian Pühringer, Jonathan Fetka, Linda Dörrzapf, Anthony Dionigi and Magdalena Bürbaumer were accompanied by Dr. Elisabeth Oberzaucher (behavioural biologist) - thank you very much for the stimulating discussions and the insight into your working practice!
The group also visited the allotment garden association and the single-family housing estate in Seestadt. Of course, the lake and the neighbouring (residential) buildings were also inspected. This allowed the students to draw a direct comparison between the different settlement structures and their influence on the residents / users.
At the aspern.mobil LAB - well deserved after the physical exercise at over 30 °C! - chilled drinks were available for all participants and so the informal end of the last walk was ushered in in a cosy atmosphere.
We look back on a beautiful and exciting semester, wish all participants / experts a wonderful summer and look forward to hopefully seeing you again soon!
