Spring 2009/2010 @ TU Delft, ANCB
MSc 1/2
01 January 2010 / 29 April 2011

How will we deal with in the future with the past that has yet to come? How will preservation change values? What will be the new monuments? We invite you to join us in an exploration of the future of our past.

During the Why Factory workshop at the Aedes Campus Network in Berlin, the multi-layered fabric of the city formed the base for speculations for future urban developments. Nine sites gave examples of how we may deal with history, value and changing requirements in the coming centuries. Research methods like speed-date brainstorms and scenario-making were used to explore the future of our past.

The workshop included a lecture by Winy Maas and two reviews. It resulted an exhibition in the space of Aedes on the Pfefferberg, Berlin Prenzlauer Berg. The exhibition was the result of the workshop at the Aedes Campus Network Berlin.
