From 5th till 9th of October IZOLYATSIA hosts the exhibition “Architecture of Consequence: Present and Future” by the Netherlands Architecture Institute with the support of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the National Union of Architects of Ukraine. The exhibition serves as a catalogue of ideas intended to demonstrate that architecture can help solve the colossal tasks we are facing around the globe.
Where there is a need, there is an opportunity: these words express realism and urgency, but above all dedication and optimism. Social transformation is impossible without an unconditional belief in progress. This belief is exactly what we need right now, as we are facing extraordinary challenges. The way we manage food, health, energy, space, time, social relationships and economic value have lost all sense of proportion. However, there is still hope—we can redress the balance.
Over recent years the Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAI), part of The New Institute, has encouraged a new engagement in architecture, urban planning and landscape design with a programme titled "Architecture of Consequence".
In this exhibition recent designs are shown alongside selected works from NAI’s rich collection of 19th and 20th century architecture. Just posing works of the past and the present, the exhibition aims to demonstrate the ongoing commitment of Dutch architects and planners in fields such as water management, urban expansion and mass housing.
We invite all those, who are interested in the issues of revitalization, rethinking of city space, searching of new forms and content of architectural forms, and everyone who believes that architecture can play an important role in meeting modern social challenges.
Opening - October, 5th 15:00
Exhibition: October, 6th-9th, from 10:00 till 18:00
