Catalyst Architecture Exhibition

Location: The Utzon Center
Type: Exhibition

HAO is narrating part of the new exhibition, Catalyst Architecture, at the Utzon Center in Aalborg, Denmark. The exhibition looks closely at different architectural projects and their ability to function as urban catalyst and programmatic drivers.

“CATALYST ARCHITECTURE – New York – Copenhagen – Tokyo – Rio de Janeiro. How can architecture promote the enriching experiences of the tolerant, the democratic, and the learning city – a city worth living in, worth supporting and worth investing in?

Catalyst Architecture Comprises architectural projects, which, by virtue of their location, context and their combination of  programs, have a role in mediating positive social and/or cultural development. In this sense, we talk about architecture as a catalyst for: sustainable adaption of the city’s infrastructure, appropriate renovation of dilapidated urban districts, strengthening of social cohesiveness in the city, development of a more inclusive urban life, and development of environments of cultural diversity and learning. The exhibition takes us to some of the fastest growing metropolises on four continents.”
