‘Atelier Brabantstad. Weaving the urban carpet’ tapestry in the Provinciehuis Noord-Brabant © IABR

Atelier Brabantstad is part of the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam of 2014, which is all about Urban by Nature. The Atelier makes us look at the city with different eyes: no longer as an independent environment, but as part of a wider urban landscape. Suddenly, the space that connects cities takes centre stage. This space appears as a richly varied urban carpet, in which keys are hidden to work on the future of the urban landscape.
