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.

The exhibition is running at CHQ in Dublin's Docklands until the 7th of April. It then moves to the Rediscovery Centre in Ballymun from the 10th to the 13th of April before finishing in Richmond Barracks in Inchicore from the 15th to the 19th and 23rd to 25th of April.
