wonderlab // Architekturzentrum Wien
Wonderland celebrates its eleventh anniversary with the exhibtion ‘wonderlab’ at the Architekturzentrum Wien (AZW) and other possible follow-ups in the Central Eastern European (CEE) region. With this exhibition format, wonderland – the platform for European architecture aims to represent its network of young and/or emerging architects and urbanists, its eleven years existence and experience as social sustainable and relevant architectural network and wants to evoke an exchange of contemporary tendencies in architecture and urbanism.
The wonderlab is an urban research lab and think tank, which is dealing with social relevant tendencies in architecture and urbanism. Within this interactive, processing and constantly growing exhibition, young teams deal with social and spatial relevant issues in the crossroads of urban transformation processes and immanent transition of urban and transitory areas. As a reference to the past, the wonderland archive will deliver material and know how of previous wonderland activities and projects. The exhibition also displays the current working fields and the projects of the European architecture practices. The wonderlab is also hosting a series of accompanying events like a series of movies with the format ‘movies in wonderland’, the discussion format ‘Blind Date’ and lectures.
‘wonderlab – 24 HOUR CITY – all inclusive’
Those categories stand for the development of the network in phases and describe the main columns of activities of wonderland. Best practice projects and case studies will be presented on a billboard in the four categories. The visitor is able to dig even deeper into the history of the eleven years history of wonderland in shelves and racks. A movie of wonderland activities in the past three years will present wonderland to the visitors. During the itinerant exhibition the wonderland-archive will constantly extended with new material.
‘Open Call – actual tendencies and questions in architecture and urban planning’
