braila laboratory - architectural approaches to a shrinking city: vernissage | may 29 | 17:00 - 19:00 | 7th floor

Using the city of Braila in Romania (a post-industrial, post-communist city with economic and population decline) as the field of operation, an international group of students and teachers has been exploring forms of operational capital that go beyond economy to develop architectural approaches. As such we have been working both in the studio in Bergen and on the field in the city to explore and ignite latent potentials derived from the particularities of the context - latent potentials such as the creative potential of users, the undervalued Communist era heritage, new forms of micro-urbanisms, an abundance of space and building stock formed as a result of economic and demographic contractions, etc. As part of our field work, we have sought ways to test and calibrate the architectural approaches through direct actions, such as built interventions, participatory processes, interviews or presentations - a dialectical process where performance forms a way of thinking and doing architecture and is a central part of the process of "how to" maximize the affect with limited means.
