"Haus der Zukunft"
As part of a restructuring plan of the Viennese Heldenplatz, a “Haus der Zukunft” (House of the future) shall be built at this location. This is meant to function as a symbol of a new approach to the relationship between citizens and politics and is to be developed on the basis of transparent public participation. To design this participatory development process, a temporary building will be erected on the Heldenplatz by 2018.
The “Haus der Zukunft” aims to foster knowledge-based processing and development of future-oriented topics in Open Innovation– and citizen participation processes. The “Haus der Zukunft” should not only be a place of exchange, encounter and creation of ideas and representations for the design of future concepts, but also a place for exploration of new models of those collective decision-making processes that lead to those ideas. Moreover, the focus of the “Haus der Zukunft” is the translation of innovative concepts from the field of design thinking, open innovation, Citizen & Community Science etc. whose models and solutions are not only scalable but also implementable on local and regional levels. Using the latest methods of science centers, the content will be processed in a scientific manner and presented to the general public. Thus, the “Haus der Zukunft” should become a central space for future dialogs between science/research, economics, politics/administration, arts and civil society and foster this exchange.
