urbainable – stadthaltig Positions on the European City for the 21st Century
The title of the exhibition already alludes to the hypothesis that sustainability and the city cannot be seen in isolation from each other. It examines the role of the European city in a time of global warming, digitalisation, demographic change and the dissolution of traditional social networks, and seeks answers to the questions of whether the successful model of the “European city” is outdated or whether it is once again proving its adaptability and innovative power.
An installation consisting of photographs by Erik-Jan Ouwerkerk and research by the Institute of Urban Design and Planning at Leibniz University Hannover form the thematic introduction. The main section features 33 projects from the fields of architecture, engineering, landscape architecture and urban planning by members of the Architecture Section and their guests. Common to all projects is the continuity of change and a commitment to the common good. Curators: Tim Rieniets, Matthias Sauerbruch, Jörn Walter.
The curators and members will engage in discussions on the opening weekend and at the accompanying events.
