The topic of my thesis is the construction of municipal housing in Vienna`s post-war period, with a focus on the Per-Albin-Hansson estate West (architects: Franz Schuster, Friedrich Pangratz, Stephan Simony, Eugen Wörle, 1947-1951 and 1954-1955). After a short review of the municipal housing of the "Red Vienna", the residential construction activity of the post-war period is thoroughly examined. Therefore, the Vienna residential buildings raised between 1947 to 1955 are described in detail. The main criteria are the urban sites, the settlement structures, typologies, blueprints, residential service facilities, the involved architects, the architectural elements and the relationship with the environment. Furthermore, another essential aspect is whether the settlements in Vienna are influenced by Great Britain`s garden city movements and whether there are any analogies to German municipal housing. A final spotlight falls on the restoration measures of the 1990`s. The main sources for the research are the blueprints for the Per-Albin-Hansson estate West of the -Architekturzentrum Wien- (Eugen Wörle`s heritage) and those of the municipal department 37.
