Rotterdam/Copenhagen-based Powerhouse Company and critic and architectural historian Hans Ibelings (the Architecture Observer) present at GM8 an evocative, polemical exhibition illustrating the far-reaching impacts of new economic circumstances on architecture’s present and future, through film, models, and text.

The exhibition traveled from the Architecture Foundation in London where it was on show from 9 May – 9 June. At the Amsterdam opening Nanne de Ru (Powerhouse Company) and Hans Ibelings will be joined in conversation by Michiel van Iersel (Non-fiction and Failed Architecture) and Bastiaan Gribling (Cityscapes Gallery). 

The evening will also mark the Dutch premiere of the new publication resulting from Ibelings and Powerhouse's research, which will be available to purchase on the evening.
