International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam
IABR–2016–THE NEXT ECONOMY–
The seventh edition of the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam invites (alliances of) designers, knowledge institutes, governments, social organizations, companies, and citizen initiatives from all over the world to respond to the IABR–2016–CALL FOR PROJECTS–and submit concrete projects or plans that substantiate the Biennale’s main exhibition, THE NEXT ECONOMY–.
IABR–2016–THE NEXT ECONOMY–advocates an urban economy that is guided by a social agenda, is motored by meaningful employment, makes prudent use of natural and human capital, and generates greater social inclusion. IABR–2016 welcomes design that opens up perspectives of a city in which such an economy can flourish. What kind of urbanity does this involve? Are we sufficiently clear on what we’re looking for, where new opportunities will arise?
IABR–2016 is a platform for creative coalitions of designers and other stakeholders with fresh ideas on the possible future of the 21st-century city. It will exhibit designs and promote dialogues that open up perspectives of the city we want: a clean city, a communal city, a productive city—a city in which the public space once again occupies center stage.
IABR–2016–THE NEXT ECONOMY–will open in April 2016. Chief Curator is Maarten Hajer, Director-general of PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency and Professor of Public Policy at the University of Amsterdam, with Joachim Declerck (Architecture Workroom Brussels), Jandirk Hoekstra (H+N+S Landscape Architects), Daan Zandbelt (De Zwarte Hond) and George Brugmans (IABR).
The curator statement, call for projects, application form and criteria + guidelines for IABR–2016–THE NEXT ECONOMY–can be downloaded from www.iabr.nl.
Deadline for entering projects is June 4, 9am (GMT+1).
