AMO and the Harvard Graduate School of Design devoted a three-month studio in Rotterdam to exploring and engaging with the (European) countryside.
As cities cover 2% of the world’s surface, the studio focusses on the 98% percent less accounted for to start understanding how – in the explicit absence of designers – this political, cultural, economic and tech-driven landscape is evolving and can function as a reservoir of ideas to speculate on the outcomes of the 21st century.
The exhibition will show a brief multimedia inventory of initial interests and findings by the Harvard GSD students. At De Dépendance, on the 9th floor of Spaces Hofplein, this research-in-progress will be presented and discussed in a public debate with Rem Koolhaas, Reinier de Graaf, Niklas Maak, Sébastien Marot, Armen Avanessian and Petra Blaisse.
We will represent GSD's Harvard Design Magazine with their recent issues during the evening. Do join!
Date: Tuesday 26 April 19:00, Hofplein 20 - 9th floor, Rotterdam
