Over the last two years Failed Architecture has explored the dark sides of architecture and urbanism.
During the season finale at De Verdieping in Amsterdam on Thursday 13 June a wide range of perspectives on the possible successes of failure, the resilience of architecture and the architect’s responsibility in a ravaged world will be discussed. Moreover, the role of architecture magazines will be explored. How does presenting and scrutinizing architecture influence how we think about cities?
Thursday’s speakers include Ole Bouman (Creative Director of the 5th Shenzhen Biennale of Urbanism), Matthias Böttger (head of Berlin-based think-tank Raumtaktik), and Darryl Chen (co-founder of Tomorrow’s Thoughts Today). Volume’s editor-in-chief Arjen Oosterman, Mark Studholme (editor-in-chief of Archello) and Indira van ‘t Klooster (editor-in-chief of A10 new European architecture) will discuss how their media present and scrutinize architecture.
