MVRDV and Space Group are one of three teams who have been asked to submit a masterplan proposal for the Norwegian town of Madla-Revheim, the main development area outside of Stavanger. The aim of this commission is to develop a model of sustainable growth that treats development principles, transportation systems and built structures as parts of a whole. In this proposal, MVRDV and Space Group propose to concentrate 4,000 housing units on the edge of the 780 acre site, preserving the heart of the development for open, green space, public programs and sports facilities.
The prize honors outstanding architecture that contribute to a better environment and is awarded by the Local Government and Regional Affairs in Norway. The award is given to buildings which help to maintain, renew and develop the general building tradition. Seven buildings have been chosen from the 60 nominated projects and are now competing for the prize. The winner will be announced on the 25th of June.

Past Futures, Present, Futures presents 101 unrealized proposals for New York City, dating from its formation to today with 101 reenactments by invited artists, architects, writers and policy-makers to create alternative visions for the present and future of the city. With the belief that art and architecture, beyond the production of new forms of capital or building solutions, have the power to re-imagine new forms of collective aspiration, the exhibition will present a past and future historiography of novel ideas in New York to open discussion about relevant actions in the city, their vectors of desire, methodologies, limits, audiences and agents.
The exhibition opens with all 101 Past Futures on display. Throughout the duration of the exhibition, all Present, Future reenactments are daily added till the closing of the show. On October 26 at 7pm, a second opening of the show will unveil all the commissioned reenactments.
Text by Norman KietzmannA truly spectacular location for the first night of the Dark Side Club on Saturday,August 25th: Palladio’s Villa Foscari from 1560, or “La Malcontenta.”
The Dark Side Club is the most exclusive and idiosyncratic event during the opening days of the Architecture Biennale. On three evenings, a group of 20 people meet for dinner followed by a salon. It’s not only the discussions that stretch long into the night that make it special.It’s the fact that for once, its prominent participants do not have to mince words.
