The customary catalogue was replaced by a newspaper which offered additional and more detailed information about the three interventions together with supplementary reports and broader essays on subjects such as migration, temporary use and urban development in three sections with a total of 48 pages.
In addition to this, 14 further inspiring projects in the same field, which have already been realized or are underway in Austria, were collected together and presented under the title “More Places for People”. The publication was completed by a supplement in the form of a magazine containing the entire photographic essay about “Places for People” by the Austrian photographer Paul Kranzler.
This publication formed a central link between the three locations in Vienna and the presentation in Venice, the exhibition venue and the media space opened up by the newspaper.
Published in English, the newspaper could be read in the Austrian Pavilion where copies were also available free of charge. The content can also be downloaded in English and Germany from the website www.ortefuermenschen.at.
About nine months after the opening of the Architecture Biennale a second edition of the newspaper entitled “Places for People revisited” was published as a self-critical review of the results of the three interventions.
