5th IABR – Making City

For the 5th International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam exhibition we made the introductory film called Making City. The short film and the exhibition tell the story of an unprecedented event. An event so powerful, so extraordinary that it shifted the entire human experience: urbanization. How do we make city? That is the issue at the heart of the 5th IABR: Making City. Ongoing urbanization is creating enormous political, social, economic and ecological challenges. These challenges manifest themselves in our cities, the same place where we will have to find the solutions. No cities, no future. And our cities can only take us to a better future if we do a better job of designing, planning and governing them.
