Making City Atelier Istanbul: Connecting disciplines and stakeholders in an innovative strategy for the urbanization of Istanbul


Ahead of the 5th IABR's April opening in Rotterdam, the AF hosts an evening with Joachim Declerck (Co-curator of the 5th IABR: Making City; Program Director of Architecture Workroom Brussels; Coordinator of Atelier Istanbul), Dirk Sijmons (Partner of H+N+S Landscape Architects, Design Office in Atelier Istanbul; former Governmental Advisor on Landscape) and George Brugmans (Director, IABR). How do we make city? How do we deploy making city in response to pressing socio-economic and ecological issues? With these questions, the 5th IABR: Making City is calling on everyone involved — public officials, policy makers, politicians, designers and citizens — with a message: our future is the future of our cities, so let us actively reconsider the future of cities by joining together in new ways to develop new ways of making city. The event will focus on one of the key projects of the 5th IABR, Atelier Istanbul, to explore the Biennale's working methods as both a cultural operator and a platform for research and development; collaborating with cities on concrete social and spatial challenges to effect lasting urban development by connecting disciplines, sectors and public and private stakeholders through design, research and a process of international debate and reflection.
