Urban Living & Working
From Self-Made City to Future Strategies
22 MAY - 04 JUL
AA Projects & DAZ
DAZ- Deutsches Architektur Zentrum- is a think-tank that facilitates the exchange, transmission and debate of ideas. An Initiative of the Association of German Architects, BDA, the DAZ acts as an independent forum in which architects, city planners, artists, citizens, users and critics come together to discuss and reflect upon current issues connected to architecture, spatial production and urban life.
During Make City, DAZ’s festival HUB incarnation will host Kristien Ring's URBAN LIVING Exhibition and two accompanying Y-Table-Talks.
The massive need for living space in many big cities today is a chance to forge a new era of housing by creating new qualities. The URBAN LIVING exhibition, 22.05 to 04.07.2015 at the DAZ, presents future oriented strategies and ideas for new, affordable living typologies, livable neighborhoods and a resilient urban development. The exhibition shows strategies for the future that strengthen the advantages of urban life styles as well as the specific characteristics of individual neighborhoods, as well as solutions that create synergies between citizens and decision makers. Projects from the International Urban Living Workshop and from the Self-Made City publication are presented.
