EVOLUTIONARIES
We need to get back to elasticity

“People can improvise the city; people can improvise architecture. That means the city shouldn’t resist [its] inhabitants, but obey [its] inhabitants... We need to get back to elasticity.”
– Yona Friedman, 1958

The city of the future is in constant transformation and seeks creative solutions to tailor-made housing and mixed-use environments. Tonight, we use the radical ideas of Yona Friedman’s Spatial City as a blueprint for the challenges that today’s architects and urbanists are faced with. How can we create a contemporary urban environment that allows architecture to evolve beyond rigid structures? How do cities cope with flexibility in structures worldwide, such as China and South Africa? How can cities become more ‘elastic’ and adaptive, and why is this necessary?

Talkshow Guests include Lara Schrijver, Professor of Architecture at the University of Antwerp, Jean Baptise Decavèle of Le Fonds de Dotation Denise et Yona Friedman, Jo Noero of Noero Architects, Li Tao of UAO, Mosé Ricci and Patrick Fransen & Loes Thijssen of NOAHH | Network Oriented Architecture.

This Guest Programme is organized by NOAHH | Network Oriented Architecture, the initiator of the knowledge exchange and research project EVOLUTIONARIES, in collaboration with The New Institute. For more information, please contact Barbara van Santen via bvansanten@noahh.nl.
