    In occasion of the ‘Filbo’ International Book Fair of Bogota, we are invited to present the office and relevant work of our practice on a presentation format, and take part in the workshop ‘New ways to develop Cities’ where the public sector will give us a “challenge” that needs to be solved by the participants and local developers and decision makers. These events will take place in the Dutch Pavilion, between April 25th and May 1st 2016.

    Openfabric’s aim is to generate spaces where the city, society and nature come together, addressing spontaneity rather than imposing rigid design and planning solutions. The office in its first 4 years has been designing spaces and strategies where people and nature can ‘colonize’ the landscape freely, finding solutions to avoid over-design and over-regulation. Bringing back to the city wild nature and fostering non-formal uses of the public space can generate an array of unusual and transient activities resulting in new social and ecological patterns.
