Eva Pfannes in break out sessions for the Solar Biennale at the Nieuwe Instituut - Rotterdam
Eva Pfannes is participating to the 4th Break out Session of the Solar Bienale
, exploring the theme “Spatial - Whose Energy is it? curated by IABR.
The International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (IABR) has partnered with the Solar Biennale, an initiative of solar designers Marjan van Aubel and Pauline van Dongen, and will collaborate in bringing forward the conversation on the spatial consequence of solar design. As we face an unprecedented transition towards renewable energy, the design challenges are systemic and on multiple scales, from the domestic interior to redesigning infrastructures.
The IABR has a deep seated and long standing interest in the ramifications and spatial implications of climate change and what role architecture could play in them. The energy transition will change the ways we move, cook and live, requiring new power stations, transport systems and electrical distribution networks. This will transform how our cities are built and experienced.
On September 9th, the opening symposium of The Solar Biennale, IABR curator Derk Loorbach (DRIFT) will host a breakout session, as will OOZE (Eva Phannes and Sylvain Hartenberg) and Robbert de Vrieze (Transformism). IABR Director Saskia van Stein will kick-off with a short lecture on the formal and informal spatial consequences the energy transition entail.
Time: 10:30 - 17.00
Location: Het Nieuwe Instituut
