Modernist housing estates are dismissed, as is Haszkovó in the city of Veszprém. Their stories are understood as the stories of failed urban developments, they are said to be grey, sad and soulless. Can something be soulless and disenchanted that gives home to 20 000 inhabitants? Let’s have a thought exercise and put our biases aside. Are we ready to reconsider our relation to the housing projects and think of them as “real cities” for a moment? If so, how can we go even further and fill it up with creative ideas?

In the framework of Veszprém Design Week 2019, the exhibition invites visitors to experience change in the current condition of Haszkovó brought about by five portable and durable urban artifacts in the open air.

Participants:
Edward Crooks
Point Supreme
Supervoid
MAIO
Paradigma Ariadné

The exhibition is sponsored by Veszprém-Balaton 2023 Zrt. and organised by Paradigma Ariadné.
