Reduce Reuse Recycle

German contributions to architecture biennials in Venice and Sao Paulo

For the exhibition “Reduce Reuse Recycle – Resource Architecture” at the 13th Architecture Biennale 2012 in Venice, she was intensively involved in content production, concept development and communications. She also edited the exhibition catalogue. The discussion initiated by Commissioner General Muck Petzet on reassessing the energies and potentials of existing buildings – including substantive, aesthetic, cultural, social, and historical aspects – found widespread resonance.
A follow-up exhibition and symposium in Munich continued the discourse. The symposium moderated by Sally Below questioned the relevance of RRR strategies for current debates on continued building in cities and provided a platform for international positions.
