All About The Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/ArchitectureFriday 23 February 2018
All You Need to Know About The Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture – Until the 15th of March, Nantou Old Town in Nanshan District, China, will be the main host of the Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture, the only exhibition in the world to explore issues of urbanization and architectural development.
This will be the 7th Edition of this Event! This year, famous Chinese architects Hou Hanru, Liu Xiaodu, and Meng Yan make up the curatorial team, all known for notable accomplishments in their respective fields. The Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture is hosting more than 200 award-winning exhibitors from 25 countries to share their perspectives on diversity and urban villages.
One of this year’s main theme focus is on Exploring Integrated Diversity in the Urban Context. This is especially true in China, but in case you don’t notice, Cities Grow in Difference, and this is exactly the title topic of one of the expositions/themes of this event.
This event seeks to embrace diversity at different levels of society while resisting cultural centralism by creating alternatives to mandatory planning. No wonder that the main venue of this event is Nantou Old Town, an urban village that embodies the past and present, East and West. The exhibition Cities Grow in Difference will be spread throughout the community of Nantou, creating an interactive experience for locals and visitors alike.
This year the Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture will be partnering with architects, artists, and designers to share their thoughts about urban culture through its first ever art exhibition.
Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture aims to gain examples of urban development and create a broadened discussion of urban issues. Despite the distinctive venue and topics, this year’s Biennale is only not restricted to discussions of urban villages in China, but it also serves as an opportunity to experience resistance and find alternatives to mandatory planning.
