Abstract

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 adaptation 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:
New York, Copenhagen Tokyo, and Rio de Janeiro.

The projects in the exhibition all have a powerful, social narrative that invites and opens a dialogue about new welfare goals within urban politics. They take their point of departure in people’s daily activities in the city, thereby providing possibilities for the average person to participate in the development of a more open society, while making the welfare concept meaningful for everyone.

The exhibited works are designed by SANAA, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, James Corner Field Operation, JBMC Arquitetura e Urbanismo, Atelier Bow-Wow, Ateliers Jean Nouvel, COBE, Transform, BIG, Topotek1, Superflex, and by visual artist Jane Maria Petersen.
