A free exhibition in Dublin is examining the success of the Vienna Housing Model and whether it could be used to solve Ireland's housing crisis.

'The Vienna Model: Housing For The 21st Century'  explains how 80% of Vienna residents rent their homes.

Nearly two thirds of those live in some form of public housing and even well-off professionals qualify for the tenancies which are not subject to term limits.

Newstalk reporter Aideen Finnegan has been speaking to Viennese architect Mark Gilbert, Dublin City Council chief exec, Brendan Kenny, and the Housing Agency's, David Silke, about how Ireland could take a leaf out of the Austrians' book.
