Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism 2017
Imminent Commons: The Debates
Within the scope of the Seoul Biennale of architecture and urbanism 2017, co-directed by Alejandro Zaera-Polo and Hyungmin Pai, Actar publishers and urbanNext are going to promote the publication "Imminent Commons: Urban Questions for the Near Future”, three months before the international conferences and exhibitions.
Seoul Biennale proposes a set of basic commons—an evolving network of agencies, resources, and technologies—as the critical issue in the move towards a sustainable and just urbanism. As an alternative to the modern city, the Seoul Biennale proposes 9 commons—four resources of air, water, energy, and earth, and five commonalities of connecting, making, moving, recycling, sensing—as the foundation of a new urban cosmopolitan. The Seoul Biennale presents these intertwined commons as technologies, practices, and spaces that traverse institutional and market mechanisms.
Wednesday, June 28th, 6:30-8:30 PM
