Covid pandemic, housing crisis, climate catastrophe. They all upset our supposed normality. Nevertheless, we always hope that solutions will be found so that things can get back to normal as quickly as possible afterwards. But what if this "afterwards" and this "normal" do not exist at all? Architecture and building are at the intersection of these crises: Housing shortages and concrete gold, spatial distance and the division of public space, massive energy consumption and CO2 emissions. How are all these crises related? Are we in an age where the state of exception has become the normal state and will remain so? How do we deal with crises and how can we act instead of completely losing control? What are the views of climate researchers, philosophers and housing experts, what are the demands of the young generation, and what solutions can the ever-optimistic discipline of architecture offer? An interdisciplinary panel at Az W will discuss these questions on a broad social level.

Guests:
Maja Göpel, Secretary General of the German Advisory Council on Global Change, Berlin (inquired).
Alexander Hagner, architect, gaupenraub +/-, Vienna
Elke Krasny, co-curator of the Az W exhibition "Critical Care. Architecture for a Planet in Crisis", Vienna
Katharina Rogenhofer, spokeswoman for the climate referendum and co-founder of fridays for future Austria, Vienna
Karin Zauner-Lohnmeyer, spokesperson of the European Citizens' Initiative "Housing for All", Vienna (inquired)

Moderation: Maik Novotny, architectural journalist
