Open Call: Cannes Temporary Cinema

BACKGROUND

With the exception of Hollywood, there isn’t another place in the world that has become so inextricably linked to the film industry as the city of Cannes. For more than 70 years, everyone who’s anyone in the film world — and lots of other cinema enthusiasts— have migrated to the French Riviera in May for the biggest event of the year: the Cannes Film Festival, which combines glitzy red-carpet premieres with long and intense days of screenings, discussions and networking.

The Innovation Forum MIPIM recently announced that it will feature the “Porous city – Open the tower” exhibition presented at last year’s Venice Biennale for the first time. Held in Cannes, France from March 12-15, the exhibition uses Lego towers to explore futuristic concepts of urban design imagined by the professor and architect Winy Maas, founder and director of the MVRDV architectural practice in Rotterdam and director of The Why Factory, a research institute for the city of the future. Nine three-meter high skyscrapers will rise up during the four days of the show, acting as visual support to debates on the new processes and the role of research in Europe’s urban future. For more information, including a complete program, please visit here. More images after the break.
