The desire for a green city
Especially in summer, when it is hot and record temperatures are once again being measured in overheated cities, we dream of cooler green spaces. "Vienna blooming, opens an external URL in a new window" is a kind of wish machine that makes these dreams come true. But how?
With the help of an AI (artificial intelligence) application, busy, paved Viennese streets and alleyways are unsealed and freed from cars. Instead, flower meadows, new parks and lovely little streams invite you to linger.
Behind the project are two students from the Institute of Spatial Planning at TU Wien: Luca Bierkle(who also works at our MOVE research unit) andTobias Reisenbichler. With their vision, they want to emphasise the importance of urban space and make the greening and quality assurance of Vienna's urban space tangible.
We are delighted by their dedication, congratulate them and wish them all the best for the future of the project!
