The Vienna Model at MOV, Vancouver

Vancouver is consistently ranked alongside Vienna, Austria as one of the world’s most livable cities. Vienna has a stable housing market, with 60% of the population living in municipally built, owned, or managed housing.

By comparison, Vancouver is undergoing a housing crisis. Both Vienna’s housing history and policies could provide alternative approaches for our province.

This two-month exhibit explores housing in Vienna through its portrait of the city’s pathbreaking approach to architecture, urban life, neighbourhood revitalization and new communities.
