according to aaron betsky, curator of the biennale’s ‘collage city 3D’ section, we already have enough buildings and we are changing our cities into objects that imprison us. ‘what we need are designs that make better use of what’s already there. it’s important for us to reconsider, reuse and reconceptualize man-made environments,’ states betsky.
the ‘workscape theatre’ has been constructed using bamboo
‘re-living the city’ showcases the work of contemporary designers who wish to join forces to design a better world. besides studio makkink & bey, the event presents the work of other dutch designers such as charlie koolhaas, droog design, rob voerman, bureau europa, superuse studios, iwan baan and linda vassenrood.
