Self Made City - Kristien Ring
UWA Institute of Advanced Studies Visiting Fellow
Kristien Ring's exhibition "Self Made City" is on display at the Cullity Gallery, located in the UWA Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Visual Arts, Nedlands Campus
until 9 September 2016.
With more and more people moving to urban centres worldwide, new solutions for growth are needed: strategies for densification that actually improve and bring benefits to the surrounding neighbourhood and enhance the walkability of livability of our cities. All too often, our city development is determined by profit-driven investments that lack quality. This exhibition demonstrates: new models for project development; how cost can be greatly reduced but building quality increased; diverse architectural and ecological building solutions; how projects consider social issues that enhance urban vitality; hybrid and mixed-use typologies that fuel urban interactional and strategies that allow participants to collaborate in order to create their own personal solutions.
