La Biennale di Venezia 2016 - Play for Real

51N4E’s participation, entitled Play for Real, will be exhibited at the Venice biennale 2016 in the Corderie of the Arsenale and will revolve around TID Tower, the largest architectural project ever launched in Albania, that will open this spring. The installation will go beyond the icon by using the project as an entry point to introduce the viewers to the Albanian context and to 51N4E’s long term involvement in this country since the TID Tower competition in 2004.

IABR 2016

51N4E was involved in the IABR 2016 as co-curator and designers of the scenography of the exhibition. The office designed a flexible space for learning, reflecting, sharing, that can simultaneously hold production and debate and remains open-ended.
This low-threshold design will stimulate the feeling of involvement of the visitors, allowing everyone to engage with the content in their own way. The office will make use of this space with a series of events and talks related to its activities.

Blueprint was the title of a DIY exhibition conceived in 1998 at Spark, a small gallery above a Burger King in Chelsea, in New York. All the artists in the show made a single blueprint of one of their works. The show was a send-up of high-concept exhibitions: the only connections between the works on view were their connection to the curators, the material used, and the color of the work. Sixteen years later, Sebastiaan, with co-curators and artists/architects Florian Idenburg and Jing Liu, propose a contemporary re-imagining of the original show. This exhibition, unlike its predecessor, also includes work by both artists and architects, taking the blueprint as the perfect vehicle for blurring the boundaries between these two disciplines.

Carbon Added Tax studio/ the Berlage

The Berlage presents an exhibition containing select material from the thesis projects completed during the 2013 fall term under the theme of Carbon Added Tax. During this term, the theme proposed by Dirk Sijmons of HNS was developed and guided by Freek Persyn of 51N4E as part of a three step investigation on the spatial and social implications of this newly proposed taxation system. Later this year, the material will be restaged in the upcoming Architecture Biennale in Rotterdam.
