On August 1st, The Vertical Village Exhibition, a collaboration between MVRDV, the Why Factory and the JUT Foundation for Arts and Architecture (Taipei), will open at the Hamburg Museum as part of the International Building Exhbition 2013 (IBA Hamburg). The exhibition was previously shown in Taipei and Seoul, and will run until September 29th.
"Huge apartment blocks and anonymous high-rise settlements are the characteristic features of surging growth in Asian cities. Is there any alternative to this? Can a new model for development in big cities be imagined? Can we infill these neighbourhoods and still retain the qualities of a traditional village? Is it possible to develop a “vertical village” to create a three-dimensional community that will bring diversity, flexibility and communication back into local neighbourhoods? The exhibition presents an exciting vision of urban concentration from Dutch architects MVRDV with support from the JUT Foundation for Arts & Architecture and the City of Taipei."
