SEOUL BIENNALE EXHIBITION DUBAI

Projected Futures for the Commons in Dubai

Dubai is a city that has evolved through rapid transformation. It is unique among world cities in many ways, not least of which is in terms of a population with only 10% United Arab Emirates citizenship. As a point of comparison, the World Migration Report notes that Brussels has the next largest imbalance between expatriates and citizens, with citizens comprising 38% of the city’s population. In keeping with the Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism’s focus on an urban future of radical social, ecological, and technical transformation, Projected Futures for the Commons in Dubai presents a series of proposals that considers what can be common in a city defined by diversity. The exhibition, comprised of proposals by an emerging generation of architects and designers, is a critical examination of the challenges and possibilities associated with expatriate existences.

PINKCLOUD.DK teamed up with Katayoun Lazar to develop “Dubai Smiles” – a solution to the lack of recreational areas for adults in the Bur Ddubai district of Dubai

CO-MACHINES BOOK LAUNCH

ON/OFF launched the Riso-printed limited edition of the Co-Machines Book and a limited poster at Hopskotch Berlin, yesterday.
PINKCLOUD.DK’s Bikecropolis project is featured and we are happy to be part of the amazing project.

Co-Machines: Mobile Disruptive Architecture

About the Book:

‘Co-machines: Mobile Disruptive Architecture’ takes as its premise the recent tendency among architects and designers to opt out of traditional office work in favour of creating self-initiated interventions in public space.

This compendium investigates a new architectural movement motivated by practices of place-making, occupying and squatting, and alternative economies. Ecological or technological in scope, all the interventions in the book are mobile and nearly all of them are performed without permission from city planners.

Presenting a selection of international projects by emerging designers, ‘Co-machines: Mobile Disruptive Architecture’ investigates the interventions and the accompanying movement to question its methods, and its arguments against the established procedures of urban planning and city-building. The visual language of the book, inspired by DIY risograph printing, is complemented by a series of thoughtful essays by architects, educators and critics working on the topic.

Projected Futures for the Commons in Dubai

Dubai is a city that has evolved through rapid transformation. It is unique among world cities in many ways, not least of which is in terms of a population with only 10% United Arab Emirates citizenship. As a point of comparison, the World Migration Report notes that Brussels has the next largest imbalance between expatriates and citizens, with citizens comprising 38% of the city’s population. In keeping with the Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism’s focus on an urban future of radical social, ecological, and technical transformation, Projected Futures for the Commons in Dubai presents a series of proposals that considers what can be common in a city defined by diversity. The exhibition, comprised of proposals by an emerging generation of architects and designers, is a critical examination of the challenges and possibilities associated with expatriate existences.
