Practice Place: naar een Bioregionale Bouw?

Towards a Bioregional Construction?

How do we create conditions for a sustainable and hopeful design practice? IABR 2024 introduces a Practice Place, a meeting space in the exhibition, where we call on the architectural community in the broadest sense to come together around the transformation of practice.

The Dutch government has committed to a circular economy by 2050. But what influence does circularity have on our relationship and the origin of materials, building culture, and the landscape? In this meeting we bring together experts who have gained experience in design and construction processes that are part of long-term relationships with local materials, landscapes, and the knowledge contained therein. We discuss whether and how circularity implies radical re-localization, and what that means for complex urban areas and rural areas.

The demand for bioregional construction is by definition location-based. This meeting is therefore the starting point of a series of local meetings in regional architecture centers, organized in collaboration with the Ministry of the Future. On July 19, they will give a workshop to train attendees in organizing place meetings around systemic and local questions. Studio Inscape stimulates the imagination inspired by their Bioregional Design Game.

Towards a Bioregional Construction? Is part two of a series of seven full-day workshops. The meeting is documented in a living archive in the exhibition, inspires a podcast series in collaboration with De Architect, and ultimately leads to a New Narrative for Architecture and Urbanism (NNAU) that will be festively presented during the closing weekend of the biennale.
