historical, political and economic background information, interviews, urban development strategies and architectural designs are critically examined in relation to their realisation. by confrontation with the material of the project «palais donaustadt», the archive becomes a place of negotiation of the dramaturgy of historical changes, future developments and temporary artistic intervention.

additionally, the archive provides background information for camp firma raumforschung. during the whole process it is supplemented and open for the interested public.
