The Grand Projet
29 August - 11 September - Exhibition and Book Launch, Singapore Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA)
25 September - 4 October - Exhibition, ETH Zürich
Urban Megaprojects are increasing in number all over the world. They have become major drivers for urban intensification and manifestations of the larger economic and political agenda of their city. This book by a.o. Kees Christiaanse looks into the adaptive and inclusive capacities that urban megaprojects can offer to shape the future of our cities. The exhibition presents the results of a four-years comparative research at the Future Cities Laboratory on the making and impact of urban megaprojects in Asia and Europe.
3 October 2019 - Prague
Shared Cities brings together eleven organisations from Belgrade, Berlin, Bratislava, Budapest, Katowice, Prague and Warsaw to create a space for architecture, art, urbanism and the sharing economy and to contribute to the transformation of urban life. From 2016 to 2020 more than 300 activities take place: festivals, films, exhibitions, artists’ residencies, case studies – our ambition is to show urban citizens that their participation is essential for making their cities a better place to live. The book Shared Cities Atlas applies the new, global ‘sharing paradigm’ in architecture and public sphere to a site-specific situation in seven cities in Central Europe and presents creative forms of sharing driven by idealistic positions and collective actions – new approaches to sharing of spaces and architecture, experience and knowledge, data, or collective histories.

Do it Ourselves
4 October - Pakhuis de Zwijger Amsterdam
In recent years, Dutch Design has sharply diverged from its previous course. A generation of designers trained in and shaped by the crisis years chose new values and starting points. The focus is now on inquisitive and collaborative makers who strive for social relevance and, if possible, impact. Jeroen Junte is the first to describe this new stage in the development of the widely acclaimed Dutch Design in his new book Do It Ourselves, by way of 199 surprising, innovative, astonishing projects and products.
