Lost and Found - Perspective on resources

Klaus Kodydek; Maria Tsaneva; Nathalia Portella

The ‘Nordbahnhof' area represented as collection of “in situ” and “ex situ” resources.

The area around the former ‘Nordbahnhof’railway station has been neglected and taken by nature over the years but is now one of Vienna’s biggest inner city development areas. Facing the drastic changes the Architekturzentrum Wien launched the Care+Repair initiative in which Social Design was invited to develop prototypes.

Based on an in-depth four months researchthe site specific storytelling and its potential to implement used material in the new constructionswererevealedas relevant local resources.

Over two workshop weeks together with an interdisciplinary group of volunteers the Teammanaged to delineate and highlight the future building line, offering alsoa guided walk. Simultaneously they scouted used materials shops for valuable resources for the future development. The research on “in-situ” and “ex-situ” resources resulted in an exhibition presenting the valuable current use of the space combined with examples of how material flow can be implemented in the new construction.
