Climate City

Climate City explores how digital technologies contribute to addressing climate adaptation and develops digitalization strategies that take urban sustainability into account. Climate City focuses on digitally supported participatory climate adaptation and is committed to the idea that a smart city should be a climate-conscious city.

Future Heritage

What’s the future like? For professionals in the exhibition business this is a very relevant and difficult  problem. Because the future does not give us any objects yet.

Hybrid Prosumer

The workshop is an experimental laboratory that strongly interacts with the public. During the workshop the participants learn how to use a Do It Yourself (DIY) 3D printer and how to share the digital design information of physical objects through online communities.

Copy Culture

Hybridization is an evolutionary strategy of cumulative, dynamic cultures that are based on intercultural connections and fostered by cross-fertilization.

FuTourism

Increasingly tourism is contributing to global prosperity and enabling intercultural exchange, increasing the global ecological footprint and threatening local culture.

Global Challenges Smart Solutions

Highly innovative, creative and pragmatic Dutch approach to develop technology solutions for global challenges at the Hannover Messe 2014.

Co-Thenticity

Cross-fertilisation, borrowing other’s ideas and incorporating elements of other’s culture into one’s own is crucial to cultural development.

Hybrid Habitat

Is there no security in the global world? The longing for more certainty in an increasingly complex world – and innovative solutions for coping.

Trust and certainty play an increasingly important role for people in the globalized world. Globalization does not only take place “outside”. For one’s personal environment is also becoming globalized – actual living space is expanded to encompass the virtual space of the Internet.

Information Technology @ the Urban

In architecture’s role of defining and materialising the spaces for social interaction, designing the relationship between the physical and digital public domain is becoming more and more of a challenge: investigating the relation and interconnection between the “soft” city with its finite material counterpart, the living environment, speculating about interfaces between the “virtual” and the material (urban) world and designing hybrid (analog-digital) communicational spaces.

New Mobility

Architecture in the information age

The world is changing and with it the cities. The new possibilities of physical mobility in the industrial age have decisively influenced architecture and city planning. The question now arises as to how much the present revolution of information and communication will have.

Mobility

International Architecture Biennial Rotterdam event is held every two years in the Dutch port city of Rotterdam, itself recognized worldwide as an architectural trendsetter.
The International Architecture Biennial focuses 2003 entirely on the theme of ‘mobility’, examining the issue of modern-day mobility and the consequences for architecture and urban development. Architects, civil engineers, urban planners, traffic experts, landscape architects, students, filmmakers and photographers from around the world will spend two months presenting plans and exchanging ideas in the form of exhibitions, lectures, publications, debates, films and excursions.

Communication Space

Today, the communicational paradigm, with its “network-cities” and “nodes”, “terminal architectures” and “urban branding strategies” is infiltrating and transforming the architectural/urban discourse and practice.

Reassuring Habitat

What about security in our globalized world? The yearning for more security in our increasingly complex world and innovative solutions for coping with it.
Trust and security are becoming increasingly important for people in our globalized world. Globalization does not only take place “outside”; our own personal environment is also being globalized, with our real surroundings being expanded by virtual Internet space.

Migrating Reality

Electronic and digital systems generate completely new forms of migration. In the creative arts, new phenomena related to migration and the synergies of disparate systems are emerging. Artistic products evolve from traditional forms into hybrid digital forms. Analog products are being digitized; data spaces are trans-located from one data storage system to another; existing sounds, images, and texts are remixed and fused into new datasets.

Copy Culture

The Copy/Culture Symposium İstanbul, presented by Premsela, the Netherlands Institute for Design and Fashion in cooperation with SALT examines the implications of copying, open source and sampling on the design trade and profession. Talks by Fulco Blokhuis, Aslı Kıyak İngin, Geert Jan Jansen, Tomas Klassnik, Elizabeth Sikiaridi, Tim Vermeulen, Fei Wang and Atilla Yücel.

Refugium

Elizabeth Sikiaridi and Frans Vogelaar lecture on June 7th 2013 at DMY International Design Festival / Berlin Design Week 2013.

Big Design & Big Data

GeoCity Smart City is the feature exhibition for Beijing Design Week 2013. Curated by CMoDA (China Millennium Monument Museum of Digital Arts), the exhibition augments and maps information design and application cases for smart cities initiatives around the world, and to use it as input for Smart Beijing case development.

CRISIS design

How long can you hold your breath? Lecture on Crisis Design on September 26th 2013 at the event Our air! Our responsibility! , organized by Interactive Beijing and the Central Academy of Fine Arts Beijing.
