SEPTEMBER 2011

Block City exhibition

 
“The A101 Block City competition, organized for the Masshtab corporation in Moscow, envisioned the creation of a new city of 200.000 inhabitants near Moscow. The masterplan brief demanded that 80% of blocks have standard sizes. An open competition for the design of the blocks was organized. 210 architects from 20 countries took part – 147 projects are shown in this exhibition. They are presented here in the form of a catalogue from which and endless number of different cities can be built by simple replacing blocks with others”. Bart Goldhoorn
Our entry Urban Block is now on display inside the exhibition LIVING Frontiers of Architecture in the Louisiana Art Museum, close to Copenhagen. Image and informations from the NL Architects Blog.
