IMAGINE THE FUTURE OF THE FUTURE!
The Center for Architecture and ARCAM are thrilled to announce the exhibition programs for Glimpses of New York and Amsterdam in 2040. The exhibition challenges ten architecture, landscape architecture and design firms to imagine an urban future that includes new waterside cityscapes, neighborhoods, and transit systems.
The exhibition will open in New York at the Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place, on June 8, and remain on view until September 10. The show will also be installed in Amsterdam, on view at the Amsterdam Centre for Architecture (ARCAM) June 17 until August 13.
Exhibiting New York and Amsterdam architects and landscape architects will present their work, offering glimpses into the future of New York and Amsterdam by themes of five basic human activities: BREATHING, EATING, MAKING, MOVING and DWELLING. These glimpses are starting points to project the future of the future – visions that will provoke dialogue regarding the potential of planning strategies.
During the opening week in New York several debates will be organized at the Center for Architecture, starting with lectures by Ton Venhoeven on Sustainable Mobility and Bjarne Mastenbroek(SeARCH), and debates on the Future of Practice and Climate Change. During a Symposium on the Glimpses at Saturday June 11th respondents from the fields of government, academic and professional practice will reflect on the projected glimpses into 2040. A wrap-up panel among the theme respondents will address how the glimpses of the future impact the discussion of sustainable cities today, as well as lessons learned across the various approaches.
