Feature: Hombroich

Edited by A+U Publishing


Full Description

a+u’s June issue features Hombroich. Located between Düsseldorf and Cologne, Hombroich is a place for art and culture that covers an area of more than 60 ha. Toward the south is Museum Island, a lush green art park dotted with pavilions, and toward the north is a former NATO missile base, Raketenstation, that has been transformed into spaces for artistic production. In addition to these 2 sites, Museum Island and Raketenstation, this issue also features SpacePlaceLab, an ambitious expansion project conceived from 2003 to 2008, and SpacePlacePractice, a series of regional scale proposals, triggered by events near the site in the 2020s, such as climate change disasters and the shutting down of open-cast lignite mining. Hombroich is now being confronted by the challenges of our century with extreme urgency and relevance – which similarly raises the question, “how can our way of life exist in parallel with nature?”

Text in English and Japanese.
