Further information

What can urban development look like to attract even more people to the bicycle? With project examples from all over the world, the exhibition Fahr Rad! promotes the gentle reconquest of the city and shows how the road to an ecologically, economically and socially sustainable environment can also lead through the planning of cities and towns suitable for cycling.
Solutions from the cities of Copenhagen, Groningen, Barcelona, New York, the Ruhr area and Oslo will be shown. In addition, the situation of bicycle traffic in Graz and Styria will be referred to.

The Haus der Architektur does not only want to approach the subject of bicycles as a means of transport, but also to deal with the extent to which the confrontation with contemporary urban mobility creates opportunities to discover public space as a new resource. The aim is to rearrange the public space and thus the street space for use by all and to distribute its surfaces in such a way that safe, comfortable and balanced mobility is possible for all people. The exhibition also aims to stimulate an inclusive debate and encourage exchange and cooperation between different actors.
