tentoonstelling gratis, rondleiding €5 Blue Hall deSingel Antwerp
This exhibition is set more in the context of urban planning. It presents an intervention and recent projects of the Madrid architects Inaki Abalos & Juan Herreros. The collage is a significant point of departure in their work, in the visualisation as well as in supplying a context for their buildings and urban development plans. A fascination for mass culture, industrial technology, landscape topology and artificial phenomena places their project often between two extremes: a hybrid program and programmatic permanence. Characteristically, their projects have been diverse, including a sports complex (Valladolid, 1991), an administrative centre for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Madrid, 1992), a residence for an artist with an atelier annex (Villanueva de la Canada, Madrid, 1996-2002), a community centre (Colmenarejo, Madrid, 1999), a recycling park (Valdemingomez, Madrid, 1999) or a public library (Usera, Madrid, 2002). At the end of April 2004, concurrent with their deSingel exhibition, their largest project to date will be completed: the coastal 'Forum' in Barcelona. The plans call for the construction of expansive public green areas, which will include a marina and a recreational area, simultaneously with a waste incineration plant ánd recycling and eco park.
