Will it Sustain? - three international exhibitions on sustainability
Under the title WILL IT SUSTAIN? the Danish Architecture Centre presented three international exhibitions on the theme of the paradoxes of sustainability. The exhibitions, Behind the Green Door, The Banality of Good and Shifts could be seen in conjunction with a wide range of debates, lectures, film screenings, family activities and guided tours.
Can a window be sustainable, too sustainable and completely unsustainable all at the same time? Is a solar power-operated lawn mower sustainable, when it is designed to trim the artificial and intensively irrigated golf courses in desert states? These are some of the questions and dilemmas that was spoken of at this exhibition.
Lectures, debates, films and family activities on the subject of sustainability
WILL IT SUSTAIN? was more than just exhibitions. It was also a rich programme of debates, lectures, film screenings, guided tours and family activities, all of which took place during the period of the exhibition.
The Danish Architecture Centre also provided the setting for debates and lectures on the subjects of sustainability and lifestyle, food and sustainability and much more.
Exhibitions, which travelled around the world
The three exhibitions have all been presented on international platforms throughout the world. Behind the Green Door was originally created as the main exhibition at the Oslo Architecture Triennale, which took place in autumn 2013. The Banality of Good was conceived for the latest International Architecture Biennale in Venice in 2012, and has since been shown in London and Brazil. Shifts: The Economic Crisis and its Consequences for Architecture was shown in London and Amsterdam in 2013.
