International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam 2012 Review

From April to August 2012 is taking place in Rotterdam the 5th International Architecture Biennale (IABR) under the motto “Making City “.

Trying to give answers to the question “How do we make city? ” the Biennale proposes a series of exhibitions, lectures, debates and events during these months. IABR is organized based on their own research program, through their own projects and collaborations with the Dutch government and a selection of best practices worldwide, exploring different ways to act in the city.

The projects exhibited take place in cities like New York, Paris, São Paulo, Delhi, Rotterdam, The Hague, Groningen and Almere, showing that standard solutions are not enough anymore, the development of cities in the future will involve much more interaction between disciplines (and of them with their users).

Since I currently live in Rotterdam I will dedicate a category in this blog to explain and analyze the various proposals for the future of Urbanism into the 5th IABR.
