Biennial of the Americas 2013
July, 16 – September 2, 2013
In all parts of the Americas, what we do in our cities, and how they are built, used, and treated, can inform us about how we see ourselves today and how we project into the future.
Schoolhouses are now hotels, department stores make way for parks, warehouses become lofts, and where proud buildings once stood we find an empty lot. Through the exploration of these changing spaces, Draft Urbanism is a celebration of the diverse ways we can address the urban future through the arts, while maintaining a deep understanding and respect for the city’s rich, fluid history.
Four large-scale architecture installations will address site-specific urban challenges and key planning issues presently facing downtown Denver, while artwork and text will be exhibited on billboards and signage throughout the area, temporarily refashioning the city as one giant exhibition.
