G-dlF research book for the Seoul Biennale 2019

Gutiérrez-delaFuente unveils the research book for the Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism 2019 that will take place in Seoul from the 5th of September until November. The research book is included in the Madrid / AUE pavilion that G-dlF has curated and designed. G-dlF has also co-curated a topic of the Seoul Biennale about Productive Cities, together with the cities of Brussels and Vienna.

“Rendering the Collective in the Circular City” is a reflection about the new proximities in the post-industrial productive city and its impacts on a political, ecological, spatial, social and economic level. The research is supported by five fundamental aspects about circularization and territorial metabolism: political scale, territorial segregation, urban armatures, hybridization, and the imaginary of the collective.

The city of Madrid serves as a case-study, specifically the southeast area, which contains at the same time the most vulnerable and potential areas.

The research includes a reflection about the Spanish Urban Agenda 2019 (AUE 2019), a transversal urban guide to address the challenges of the Anthropocene age.

Thanks to the Ministry of Development (AUE, Spanish Urban Agenda), the Municipality of Madrid, our partners of Urban Reports, and the extraordinary collection of international collaborators we had on board (Kristiaan Borret, Luis Fernández-Galiano, Kaye Geipel and Bernd Vlay), and the dream-team of ten multidisciplinary experts on the Spanish Urban Agenda.
