Transformation of the city - chance or loss
07. November 2014, 3 p.m.
Only a few areas in Vienna have undergone such significant and at the same time unnoticed changes as the district Margareten. Social and architectural transformations will be discussed: closed shops being just as much part of the urban mix as emerging initiatives. With Erich Bernard und Franziska Leeb. Limited number of participants!
Duration: 3 hours
Route: from Margaretenplatz to Gaudenzdorfer Gürtel
Meeting point: 1050, office BWM Architekten, Margaretenplatz 4/L1
The exhibition „The Metropolis Experiment – Vienna and the 1873 World Exhibition“ at the Wien Museum runs until 28 September 2014. The exhibition design is by BWM Architekten.

Who has not at some point secretly wished to look through the keyhole to satisfy one’s curiosity? At the international architectural festival OPEN HOUSE your curiosity is highly welcome: On the 13 and 14 September 70 buildings open up their doors and invite you to get to know the city and its architecture from a new perspective.
On 3 September some 450 guests celebrated the annual „ÖSW Hoffest“ in the inner courtyard of ÖSW (Österreichisches Siedlungswerk) headquarters in Vienna’s 8th district. The party was accompanied by music performed by Jazzatbwm. The group of passionate musicians formed around Erich Bernard (double bass) and Markus Kaplan (trombone) regularly gets together to jam in the premises of BWM Architekten or to create great atmosphere and good vibrations like here at the „Hoffest“.

DI Markus Kaplan has become a partner at BWM in June 2014.
He has been part of the BWM team from the very first day and a junior partner since 2008. With a continually growing office size and an increasing number of projects an extension of the ownership structure is a logical step.
In the context of the extended ownership structure BWM changes its company name to:
BWM Architekten und Partner ZT GmbH
