Join us for the talk COMING OF AGE, on May 25th, 19:30, at the IUAV / University of Venice.
COMING OF AGE is a series of talks organized by CARNETS during the opening week of
BIENNALE ARCHITETTURA 2018 - FREESPACE
Christian Weyell is part of the publication ‘On Planning - A Thought Experiment’. The project will be displayed in Venice at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale.
"The publication is the result of a year-long dialogue between David Chipperfield and Simon Kretz, enabled by the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative. It critically thematises and theorises urban qualities of contemporary urban developments. Using the Bishopsgate goods yard site in East London as a case study, and with collaborative input from the Institute for Urban Design, Prof. Kees Christiaanse, ETH Zurich, this project highlights the conditions under which an ideal urban development project could flourish. The conclusions reached through this exercise demonstrate how future large-scale developments elsewhere could have more positive urban impact, both at the scale of the neighbourhood and the wider metropolis."
