The Biotope City Wienerberg at Vienna contains many qualities that will no longer be immediately visible after completion at the end of 2020. The International Building Exhibition IBA Vienna has now published the brochure “Hidden Treasures”, which describes the hidden treasures of this forward-looking quarter.
BIOTOPE CITY JOURNAL has reported on the concept, planning and implementation of this new quarter with model character for future eco-friendly green cities on several occasions. See https://biotope-city.com/de/2019/10/21/artikel_hf0002-de/. An information brochure for residents, the first of whom have already moved in at the end of 2019, is also available online here and gives even to experts a good initial overview of the special qualities of this quarter:
