In the framework of the International Building Exhibition (IBA) on “New Social Housing”, which takes place in Vienna in 2022, the TU Wien and the University of Vienna established a research cluster (“ResearchLab”) to encourage interdisciplinary, critical and comparative research in the field of social housing and urban development. To accomplish this goal, the ResearchLab started in 2018 with a series of annual International Summer Schools on relevant aspects of social housing ( In 2022, the summer school is organized in cooperation with the Marie Jahoda Summer School of Sociology and will turn to a transdisciplinary perspective on housing production in relation to the economic foundations of building and dwelling. Against the background of an increasing financialization of housing and many facets of everyday life, it will provide a space to discuss in which way the social housing sector is affected. What are the economic foundations of social housing? How are these changing in relation to new forms of regulation and funding? Are housing cooperatives and public housing “safe havens” sheltered from market forces? How is the relation between social housing and other segments on the housing market evolving? The summer school aims for an inter- and transdisciplinary discussion on the economic foundations of social housing.
