Places x @biennial of urban landscape
[17. & 18. September]

We already collaborated with at the last Places _ VR Festival. The network was our guest there with their project “image green urban futures”. Especially in Ückendorf, the topic of sustainable urban development is one of the most important building blocks in the transformation of the Bochumer Straße neighbourhood. This is why, with the biennial of the urban landscape from 10-24 September, is addressing the question of how we can reinvent the city, among other things. In various programme formats, the focus will be on how we can improve and promote urban landscape. The fact is: we can only do this together! That’s why Places is contributing one of three programme focuses to the Biennale.
