Habitat: Expanding Architecture
18 October 2018 - 9 March 2019
Habitat as Virtual Exhibition
Visit the exhibition Habitat: Expanding Architecture from the comfort of your own home. The Jaap Bakema Study Centre developed this spatial model in partnership with Ardito on the basis of the exhibition held at Het Nieuwe Instituut in 2018.
Habitat: Expanding Architecture highlights an important moment in the history of architecture and urban planning: the tenth CIAM Congress, held in Dubrovnik in 1956. The central theme of the congress was 'habitat': a broader definition of architecture through a new, ecological approach, which viewed architecture not as an autonomous discipline, but as part of a larger, dynamic whole. Habitat is the first of a series of installations in the Total Space programme.
The Jaap Bakema Study Centre develops curated virtual environments as part of the Museology research project. These spatial models are part of the centre's research into the virtual museum and its relationship to heritage.
