Abstract

The aim of the article is to present one of the largest city expansion projects in Europe; it is currently being carried out on the north-eastern edge of Vienna and is known by the name Seestadt Aspern. Its design by the Swedish design office Tovatt architects and Planners AB, which was selected through a competition in 2005, is characterized by an extraordinary wealth and variation of paved and green public spaces, as well as water bodies of varying accessibility which have been designed in such a manner as to create a system of safe and traffic-free walkable pathways and urban squares. The article will present a classification of the varied typology of the aforementioned spaces both in reference to urban plans, as well as to already built fragments of the city.
