The «exploding» city:'L'explosio de la ciutat'
FORUM Universal de les Cultures, Barcelona 2004.
exhibition digital projections were displayed mostly by reflecting images from mirrorslocated along the periphery of exhibit space.
The exhibition presented a selective inventory of the different forms of territorial transformation that have taken place in representative Euromediterranean urban regions.
The aim was to present both an overview and a
closer examination of the most significant fragments and situations in relation to the process underway.
The presentation of the morphological realities of the region was complemented by a selective examination of contemporary sociological behaviors as they relate to the new settings for urban life. Such behaviors raise questions concerning the functioning of our habitat and point to possible problems in the way that it is currently organized.
The exhibition included theoretical reflections by key authors on the international cultural scene, and a selection of territorial projects and proposals related to the urban regions examined.
Finally, various directions were suggested to guide a renewed approach to territorial development.
