During the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam 2016 (IABR), PBL (Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency) presented an installation about the past, the present and the future of urban and spatial planning. How can one plan for the future, based on what you know from the past and the present?
The installation displays real data from the past and present to show how our perspective on the future is often distorted by the ‘now’.
We created a microcosmos with particles that float throughout the 30 meter long installation, in a continuous loop. The seemingly random particles are all part of infographics that take shape at one moment in time, on a specific location in the installation.
