The Reasons Offsite Reception
March 21, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Don't miss the reception for The Reasons Offsite. This special event will kick off with a short presentation from the curator on the solutions and technology presented in the exhibition. After the presentation, visitors have the opportunity to explore the exhibition with the curator while enjoying complimentary drinks.
The Reasons Offsite exhibition focuses on prefabricated and modular building systems, referred to throughout the exhibition as “offsite architecture”. The global population is rapidly moving toward cities, creating high demand for urban spaces to live and visit. There are currently 3 billion people living in cities, but the number is expected to rise to around 5 billion by 2030, with 2 billion living under the poverty line. This rapid urbanization challenges experts to define new strategies to accommodate this growth.
This challenge calls for pragmatism, and sets the same task to architecture: time and physical resource optimization. These requirements are also the main struggles of offsite architecture, and this exhibition highlights opportunities, while examining reasons previous offsite attempts failed.
