Children and their teachers had a hand in planning their own school. The outcome and the way that a school featuring cutting-edge infrastructure and design meets the requirements of its users as a learning space can be seen at BHAK/BHAS Wien 22 on Polgarstrasse in the 22nd district.

OHW - Experience

Groups meet at the main gateway. From there it is just a stone’s throw to the centerpiece of the school: the spacious assembly hall with its wrap-around balconies. We look at the way that classroom clusters are arranged, the double height recreation space and the staff room. You will also find out more about the highly original creation process behind the project from all of those involved. The architect will be present on Saturday from 11am until noon.
