This year, we are collaborating with the Architecture Center Twente to engage in a discussion about the future of Enschede.
" Our built environment is constantly changing. The population changes, needs change and we face major challenges such as climate change and loss of biodiversity. The challenges in cities and towns can no longer be tackled sectorally, but must be approached integrally. Here it is important to involve as many individuals, organisations and stakeholders as possible in urban tasks."
With Future Talks, the Architecture Center Twente wants to explore these issues by inviting professionals dealing with urban development for an introduction and then looking at the various issues together with involved residents, organizations and stakeholders. What developments are taking place in cities? What does this mean for the city? Urban development is more than bricks and mortar and architecture. It’s about how people use and experience the city.
For Future talk #1 we have invited Jessica Hammerlund Bergman, ‘Cityarchitect’ for the Municipality of Enschede, to provide an introduction. She will talk about her experiences with the city and the developments to come.
Aike Lütkemöller and Marie Janin (co-directors Sickhouse) will react to Jessica’s presentation, sharing how they see the city? Reflecting on the impact of technology on the urban realm and what they think is important from the cultural sector to thrive?
>> Later we will host a workshop to explore the future of Enschede, where your input is needed. We will use visualising tools such as strings, lego, play-do to think together.
