Austria’s “Largest” Architectural Exhibition, created by architects and urban planners: This year’s Ars Electronica Festival will showcase visible manifestations of their inventiveness, visionary power and planning competence in the form of an amazingly diverse array of architectural models.
We’re especially intent on localization—relating these big issues to the specific facts and circumstances prevailing in Linz and Upper Austria, and implementing a point of departure that’s as simple as it is effective: a gigantic model city set up in the huge halls of PostCity. We want to create a visible manifestation of architects’ visionary power, planning competence and inventiveness, one that features as many architectural models as possible—regardless of whether they were actually built or only proposed, from a DIY prefab house to a futuristic high-rise, from houseboats to row houses, from a kindergarten to a factory …
1,001 Models of Habitats for the 21st Century – as a festival’s inspiring ambience, as showcase of excellence, and as this country’s “largest” architectural exhibition.
You want to take part in the project “1,001 Models”? We will contact many architects and urban planners in the coming days – should you be interested, please send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
