Experience the development of sustainability in architecture in a chamber of curiosities containing over 600 objects from around the world. Welcome Behind the Green Door!
The main exhibition at DogA investigates a broad variety of building projects that claim to be sustainable. Rather than starting from a preconceived assumption of what is to be considered sustainable and then trying to find good examples to illustrate the point, the curators Rotor choose to document what is being called sustainable by others: Digital renders, façade study models, software packages, promotional leaflets, material samples, mock-ups, quotes … the collection of physical and digital objects displays how architects deal with sustainability.
The exhibits in the collection tell the story of the ‘green’ features of important architectural projects from all over the world. Together, these stories reveal how architecture and planning, scientific practice, creative gesture, business opportunity and political powers are intertwined under the umbrella of sustainability.
Mon – Fri 10.00am – 17.00pm, Wed and Thurs 10.00am – 20.00pm, Sat and Sun noon – 5pm.
“The exhibition at DogA doesn’t take a stand on climate change, but rather chooses to show the diversity of sustainability. It works!” Lotte Sandberg, Aftenposten
“With such a successful questioning perspective, the exhibition certainly has the potential to enter into public dialogue beyond the gallery walls” Kim Hoefnagels, A10
“… the exhibition is an intelligent and well-informed attempt to critically and enjoyably treat a theme that might at first seem overrated and sterile.” Léa-Catherine Szacka, Domus
“In-depth archival research, focus on materials and themes of reuse have slowly but surely been developing into some of the Belgian collective’s key strengths. And they all unfailingly feature in this sustainability-driven festival.” Ellie Stathaki, Wallpaper
