‘Culture:City’ Exhibition

Inner-City Arts, Los Angeles, 2008. Community centre / art school. Architect: Michael Maltzan Architecture. Photo: Iwan Baan; Centre Pompidou Mobile, France. Architects: Patrick Bouchain and Loïc Julienne. Photo: Loïc Julienne

Taking place March 14-May 26, the ‘Culture:City’ exhibition encourages us to think consistently about the future of our cities from this perspective. Curated by Matthias Sauerbruch for the Akademie der Künste, the exhibit takes a critical eye to the relationship between architecture and the social reality of the 21st century and shows the impact of art and culture on cities and architecture. Art and culture have in many ways become key motors of innovative and successful urban design and planning, without which the world’s metropoles would no longer be worthy of the name. More information on the exhibition after the break.
