Triënnale Brugge 2015 - Tadashi Kawamata - Tree Huts in Bruges

In 2015, the (still topical) question "What if the more than 5 million visitors Bruges receives every year were to actually stay?" was the premise for the artists and architects selected to engage in dialogue with Bruges' unique heritage and its rich history. Because in a world of growing cities and endless dynamism lies Bruges' inner city with its unchanging, timeless, historic character. What if that protected historic site suddenly grew into a city of millions? Eighteen international artists and architects tackled the theme of global urbanisation, with opportunities and challenges, positive aspects and negative sides. Ranging from housing and mobility to urban dynamics and cultural diversity.
