building within the existing, Revitalization Brown-field site

A part of the URBION Master Plan and co-funded by the European Union, this intervention was designed with artist Valie Export. “The Glass Body” is an autonomous, transparent space, set underneath a railway bridge. Constructed solely from glass, the cube showcases diverse art exhibitions and performances. The permeability of the bridge between both sides of the Gürtel is emphasized by the absolute transparency.

Gürtel Dada Jukebox

A temporary Dada-street opera at Kubus Export/rhiz: costumes will be created by artists and interested audience members during the day.

The intention of the urban development project URBION by architects Tillner & Willinger was and is to upgrade the Gürtel central zone as a central public space and to create an inviting place that reconnects the districts separated by the busy city motorway. URBION achieved this, but more than 20 years have passed since the project was completed and the middle zone is in dire need of a refresh. The paths and green spaces around the project area are to be activated and revitalised through DADA Jukebox - bringing the project idea back to mind to bring about a continuation.
