Hallstatt Denkwerkstatt 2024

What will the much-discussed overtourism do to Hallstatt and the Salzkammergut region? This topic and future issues such as new living and working environments, the identity of the place, dealing with the existing/vacant buildings and the resulting new role of rural areas will be addressed by the Denkwerkstatt 2024.

The findings and impulses from the multi-year process – including the think tank completed in 2022 and the publication presented in 2023 – are incorporated into this format. In dialogue with the region and residents, architecture students from the Housing and Design research area at TU Wien are developing new perspectives and approaches to housing and living issues of the future. Hallstatt railway station as a transit and former vacant site will become a creative laboratory for the think tank.
