Seismograph City 2010, Aedes Architecture Forum, Berlin
As part of the "Seismograph City—sustainable strategies in architecture and urban design" exhibition, which was used by Hamburg to present itself in the context of the 2009 Architecture Summer, the Oval at Kaiserkai by ingenhoven architects was also presented at the Aedes Architecture Forum during the Berlin stage of the show.
The city as a universe is defined not only as an initiator of cultural, social, economic, and ecological processes, but also as a seismograph of global developments. In view of the worldwide challenges in the development of sustainable strategies and concepts in architecture and town planning, the architectural profession plays a vital, even political role, involving a great deal of responsibility.
The "Seismograph City" exhibition, initiated by the Department for Town Development and Environment in Hamburg during the Hamburg Architecture Summer and curated by Kristin Feireiss, focused on international dialog. With a broad spectrum of completed buildings, projects currently in progress, and visionary designs, the exhibition illustrated the wide range of current national and international architectural and urban design developments in the context of sustainable strategies. The show included more than 80 projects covering new construction, change of use, infrastructure, flood protection, coastal development, new energy generation, and visionary designs.
