Because of precarious housing conditions in the interwar period the occupation and settlement of land led to the cooperative organized Viennese Settlers Movement. Soon afterwards this popular movement, which pursued the target to erect at most economic housing fit for human habitation, was absorbed by the City of Vienna. Affected by the economy crisis suburban settlements for part-time farming were built furthermore. Under different conditions the City of Vienna started the New Housing Movement around the turn of the millennium. Especially for young families the construction of affordable housing out in the country should be offered as alternative to emigration to the surroundings of Vienna. Based on comparison of the building and open space structures of the examples of the Viennese Settlers Movement and the New Housing Movement four examples are selected, which are representative because of bearing resemblance to numerous other examples. The focus of this master thesis is the survey, description and interpretation of the building and open space structures of the chosen settlements “Wien-West” and “Heuberg” respectively the garden settlements “Kellerberg” and “Kellerberggasse” with particular emphasis on the gardens and their using. The aim is to point out usable building and open space structures, which are suitable for subsistence. As part of the contextualization the reconditioning of the history of origins of the Viennese Settlers Movement, the New Housing Movement and the chosen examples ensued. Additionally the general principles of planning and the values are visualized based on the settlements at Heuberg and Kellerberg. On the basis of this knowledge the Viennese Settlers Movement, the New Housing Movement and the chosen examples are subjects of discussion in terms of planning approaches for subsistence orientated building. Furthermore there is considered how they could be planning role models in a reinterpretation for future housing development projects.
