Track Changes

Architecture Biennale Sao Paulo 2013

Agency

04 Nov — 07 Nov 2013

In November 2013 The New Institute and Crimson Architectural Historians organized a series of public meetings during the X Bienal de São Paulo called ‘Track Changes’. A generation of architects and urbanists, who are connected through a common attitude, were invited to meet in an arena built especially for the occasion. Whether working in the favelas of South America, the slums of India or in the crumbling housing estates of Europe, this generation has replaced the large-scale top down masterplan and the iconic hypermodern building with a participative, temporary and flexible bottom-up approach.

The Ruin

A project composed of eight fragments of recent exhibitions and a parallel programme

Het Nieuwe Instituut is introducing a summer programme from 21 June 2013 under the title The Ruin. This marks the transition to the coming cultural year, in which Het Nieuwe Instituut makes use of various projects to give form to the multi-faceted ambitions. Besides eight presentations The Ruin consists of a parallel programme, including old questions, radical design practices, worn-out ideas and even the claim of a new Industrial Revolution. All in an awareness that everything passes and then comes back again, but in a slightly different guise.
