CHORA London is exhibiting a selection of work at the
Stirring the City Soul Exhibition, 18th April- 12th May 2012
Organised by CHORA city & energy | Institute for Sustainable Planning and Urban design | TU Berlin
STIRRING THE CITY SOUL
From urban inhabitation as Second Skin of the Earth to Smart Regions
The Earth’s climate forms part of the First Skin, cities and their infrastructures, energy and production landscapes and other urban constructs form the Second Skin. How do we turn Climate Change into an opportunity to review the practice of architecture, urban design, urban planning, and the way humanity and their cities form the Second Skin of the Earth?
This exhibition is a selection of work by Raoul Bunschoten and the platform CHORA that he founded in 1994 and is now active in London, Berlin, Shanghai and Chengdu. The work includes the Tempelhof Energy Incubator project of 2010, work in progress on the Taiwan Strait Region, a transnational project for a intelligent low carbon incubator and glimpses of a didactic and professional methodology introduced in the new chair for urban design and sustainable urban planning at the TU Berlin.
