Between Generations

Designing and building ‘a city for everyone’ is only possible if we include every kind of citizen: young people, adults, the elderly, children and anyone who does not identify with the values of any generational label. Our public space is where the needs of each generation converge and such forms of friction give rise not only to conflicts but also to opportunities for positive community life. Besides the generational differences, how can we imagine forms of architecture for mutual care?

From the climate crisis to the biodiversity crisis, the Anthropocene’s conflicts are forcing us to think about the long term, bearing in mind the interests of future generations. The city is the long-term artefact par excellence: we’re building it today for future generations to inherit. What vision of the city needs to be promoted if we understand it as an agreement between generations?

Queer de Triomf

From 05/05/2022 to 30/06/2022

Augmented reality The Arc de Triomf, as a classic symbol of victory, is reinvented through this augmented reality to offer a new cultural-pride symbol in homage to the thousands of uncelebrated victories of the LGBT community which have represented a monumental change towards the acceptance of various expressions of gender and sexual identity in Catalonia. The project has been made possible thanks to ANF Studio, based in London and run by Adam Nathaniel Furman in collaboration with Sacha Hickinbotham. Més informació
