The TURN ON architecture festival once again offers a top-class program with numerous speakers from Germany and abroad.

Welcome speech on Friday will be delivered by Michael Ludwig, City Councilor for Housing, Housing Construction and Urban Renewal in Vienna, welcome speech on Saturday will be delivered by Christian Kühn, Chairman of the Austrian Architecture Foundation and Christoph Chorherr, Spokesman for Urban Planning, Vienna.
The keynote speech of  2018 will explore the topic: Cities to Love. Architecture in City Planning., and will be delivered by Kristiaan Borret, municipal architect in Brussels, on Friday morning.
The opening speech, the welcome speech and the keynote speech provide a framework for the extensive program of lectures and reflect national and international references of the festival. The keynote speech represents a philosophical and -political meta-level, but also refers to the practice of building.
Following the speeches of the respective day, the lectures will present the current architectural practice at the highest level. On Thursday and Friday, the program will highlight the divergent facets of a building process that is increasingly differentiating itself from the present. The lectures by TURN ON PARTNER focus on controversial issues of current building from the perspectives of different disciplines.
The program channel TURN ON as usual gathers selected offices as well as specially curated buildings on Saturday, which are based on particularly ambitious design approaches. In addition to Austrian architects, renowned international speakers are represented.
TURN ON TALK is dedicated to strategies and visions of urban planning and compares developments in Belgium and Vienna.
