Exhibition packed in a freight container
In order to convince as large an audience as possible of the need to deploy architecture to solve several global issues, the NAI is letting its exhibitions travel all over the world. The following exhibitions are currently on tour and can be booked.
Architecture of Consequence: Dutch Designs on the Future since 1840
In this new exhibition, recent designs are shown alongside selected work from NAI’s rich collection of 19th and 20th-century architecture. Juxtaposing work of the past and the present, the exhibition aims to demonstrate the ongoing commitment of Dutch architects and planners in social urgencies. This exhibition can be printed and produced locally so that it can be mounted more often in the near future. In this way the NAI hopes to reach a larger audience around the world, inspiring new projects of engagement. For each location the exhibition can be expanded with projects that respond to the specific local context.
Architecture of Consequence in the Erasmus Huis, Jakarta
In the past few years our relationship with and attitudes towards food, health, energy, space, time, social relationships and (economic) value have spiralled out of control. Now, faced with the consequences of our over-consumption, we are desperately in search of ways to redress the balance. Is architecture able to play a part in restoring harmony? Can architecture help us to build a more sustainable society? Testify! presents 25 international projects by different architects, all concerned with addressing these issues. Residents, users and people living near the projects get a chance to have their say, and to comment on why they think the architect’s vision is a success – or not. The projects range from actual buildings to experimental and inter-disciplinary think-tanks and research groups.
