Rising Architecture Week 2017
The biennale Rising Architecture Week was held on 11-15 September 2017 in the Raw Hall (Den Rå Hal) at Godsbanen in Aarhus. It was launched as an international architecture biennale in 2015, and was the main architectural event during Aarhus 2017 - European Capital of Culture.
The focal point of the 2017 biennale was to discuss how architecture can play a significant role in creating innovative solutions to the challenges faced by society, and the event featured both workshops, lectures and other activities.
Here you can see a collection of 21 videos in which Daan Roosegarde, Tinna C. Larsen and other keynotes from the conference present their most important and useful ideas for a better and more sustainable society.
The Rising Architecture Week also featured an impressive Troldtekt installation created by the German architects’ collective Raumlabor. The Raumlabor installation saw Troldtekt acoustic panels being used in new and exciting ways – as up to five-metre-high ‘card houses’ stacked in different patterns.
The installation extended the length of the large conference area, and acted both as partitioning and as an acoustic element. The Troldtekt card houses were used to divide the conference area into smaller sections with inviting and pleasant areas for reflection and discussion for the many visitors, while also ensuring pleasant acoustics.
