IABR International Architecture Biennial Rotterdam
engagement: ~20 local designers and pioneers, 4 policy makers, through 2 play sessions
application period: September 2021 – ongoing [6 new sessions planned in 2022; 300 expected participants]
This particular game adaptation is in the beginning phase and will be soon introduced widely in Bospolder Tussendijken. IABR [International Architecture Biennial Rotterdam] is interested in facilitating conversations with locals about potential decentraal interventions for energy transition and climate adaptation in the neighbourhood. By bringing pioneers together with curious residents around the game table, IABR aims to increase consciousness about climate change therefore accelerate local action. The game has been play- tested twice in 2021 and there are current plans for 2022 to run a digital version of the game in combination with analog sessions.
