Radical City inc.

routes to a new urban landscape

The Radical City inc. program gives shape to a new climate-proof and nature inclusive city. Artists, designers and architects challenge conservative notions of city life and explore different routes to a new, future-oriented urban landscape. In this city, humans, flora and fauna, the environment, objects and architecture constitute one balanced system.

Radical City inc. consists of an exhibition at Transnatural and an overview exhibition at Dutch Design Week in 2023. The placement of various works in public space, workshops, lectures and a bike tour are also part of the program in collaboration with Zone2Source, Pakhuis de Zwijger and the Tolhuistuin.

An evolving exhibition at Transnatural provides the basis for an ongoing exploration of radical ideas for the city of the future. In this new urban landscape, the connection between people, nature, public space, objects and architecture is crucial. The symbiosis also provides solutions to complex challenges of our time, such as drought, humidity, salinization, subsidence, pollution and endangered flora and fauna. This city interacts directly with its surrounding landscapes.

The first exhibition presents conceptual works, artistic approaches and prototypes. A number of works will be actually realized and placed in public spaces in the next stage of the program. Thus, the city of Amsterdam is not only used as a utopian platform but sets the stage for the first steps towards the city of the future.
