Opening of LUCA with exhibition on Common Ground
The question of land is one of the most important keys to address climate protection and social change. The exhibition EISE BUEDEM, shown originally at the Architecture Biennial in Venice in 2018, has been completed with a panorama of positions on this question and with more recent experimentations undertaken by architects and engineers of the University of Luxembourg. An accompanying programme will put in dialogue European reflexions, models and projects with expertise and actors from Luxembourg. Every conference-debate will start with two statements, followed by a debate and an exchange with the audience. The goal is to identify potentials for – as well as obstacles to – a land reform and a more socio-ecological development of our city-landscapes. Confirmed guests are: Daniela Brahm (artist, ExRotaprint, Berlin), Lex Faber (urban and spatial planner, Zeyen Baumann, Luxembourg), Tanja Herdt (urban planner, TU Delft), Laurent Langer (vice director of architecture, City of Luxembourg), Sébastien Marot (philosopher, ENSA Paris-Est), Elisabeth Merk (director of urban development of the city of Munich), Sabine Kessler (hydrologist, IBLA, Luxembourg), Norry Schneider (CELL, Luxembourg). The highlight of the programme is the key lecture by James Wines, founder of the legendary New York based office SITE, on 23 February.
