NLÉ WATERFRONT Exhibition

NLÉ, 2016

€50.000
NLÉ built the Makoko Floating School on the waters of the Lagos Lagoon in Nigeria. An initiative of the architect Kunlé Adeyemi, the floating school was designed and built in collaboration with the Makoko Waterfront Community. The school is a symbol for inclusive urban development and an alternative construction method in a setting that is confronted with the effects of climate change. For the biennale, NLÉ is building a replica of the Makoko Floating School on the water at the Arsenale quayside. In this replica of the school, NLÉ is staging an exhibition about the changing relationship between water and rapidly expanding cities.

Architecture Biennale: Cosmogonia Mundi

MAKE MOVE THINK, 2018
Cosmogonia Mundi reflects on the possible futures of the City of Venice and the Port of Marghera in the form of live dance, using Northscapes Collective's installation The Port and the Fall of Icarus on the shore of the laguna as a backdrop, and a film documentary in the main exhibition of the Venice Pavilion/Marghera. In this project, which is part of a larger research programme, MAKE MOVE THINK explores the dialogue between individualism and collectivism in contemporary urban culture. Performing Arts and Architecture meld to create a moment where Dance is not merely performance and Architecture is not permanence.
Below a short documentary created as part of the project 'Cosmogonia Mundi' at the Venice Architecture Biennale.

Architecture Biennale: Architecture in the Netherlands - Yearbook

nai010 uitgevers (Lara Schrijver, Kirsten Hannema, Robert-Jan de Kort, Reinier de Graaf), 2018
Every year nai010 publishers produces a new edition of the Architecture in the Netherlands Yearbook with an overview of 30 realized constructions, which additionally describes the most important developments and trends that influence the production and design of Dutch architecture. This year the presentation of the yearbook takes place simultaneously with the Flemish yearbook by the Flanders Architecture Institute, on the border between the Belgian and Dutch pavilions as a symbol of the dialogue between the two neighbouring countries. The discussion partners explore the various interpretations of the professional field in Belgium and the Netherlands, with particular attention paid to new forms of housing, circular design, the rediscovery of rural areas and the role of private commissioning of housing.

Architecture Biennale: Free Market

Jeffrey Bolhuis (AP+E) met Jo Anne Butler (Superfolk), Miriam Delaney (DIT), Tara Kennedy (Culturstruction), Orla Murphy (Custom) & Laurence Lord (AP+E), 2018
With the Free Market project, co-curator of the Irish pavilion Jeffrey Bolhuis explores the role of marketplaces in Irish villages. These marketplaces were once the social and economic centres of the villages and their wider surroundings, but have now largely lost their original function. Free Market focuses on the potential of these places, with the aim of encouraging social cohesion and sustainable economy in the villages and region. As a result, this research also has significant relevance for regional development in the Netherlands and Europe. The Free Market exhibition marks the starting point for a travelling exhibition and a longer-running project that is part of the international debate about the future of rural villages.

Architecture Biennale: The Port and the Fall of Icarus

The Northscapes Collective (Hamed Khosravi, Taneha K. Bacchin en Filippo laFleur), 2017
The Northscapes' proposal would take the discovered manuscript titled “The Port and the Fall of Icarus” as the point of departure to search for possible scenarios for the future of the Rotterdam Harbour. An installation would set the ground for series of events and discussions around the topic of a smart and intelligent port and its relation to the vision of the Rotterdam Harbour, the city and its inhabitants. Such events will be organized throughout the period of the biennale in collaboration with the academic institutions.

Below is a podcast by René Boer and Arif Kornweitz with The Northscapes Collective about the installation 'The Port and the Fall of Icarus' recorded in May 2018 during the Architecture Biennale Venice preview days of the exhibition WORK, BODY, LEISURE in the Dutch pavilion.
