Today, we can draw floor plans as easily from bed as from the office. And with the emergence of platforms such as <a href="" target="_blank">Skwerl</a>, the freelance economy looks like it could start to break up the centuries-old work structure of firms.&nbsp;</p> It's the Culture, Stupid: curatorial statement for the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam, from executive director George Brugmans Orhan Ayyüce 2016-07-09T09:38:00-04:00 >2016-07-15T00:56:30-04:00 <img src="" width="650" height="434" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>It all started January 2010 when I first <a href="" target="_blank">interviewed the director of International Architecture Biennale of Rotterdam George Brugmans</a> for Archinect. Since then, our relationship developed and I closely followed his work at IABR which I find arguably the most serious biennale concerning urbanism and city-making at the highest level of reality and usefulness.</p> Student Works: "[X]City: Making Interior Cities" from the Piet Zwart Institute Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-03-20T16:59:00-04:00 >2014-05-13T18:08:03-04:00 <img src="" width="650" height="457" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Focusing on a defunct submarine wharf in the Port of Rotterdam, students in the <a href="" target="_blank">Masters of Interior Architecture and Retail Design</a> program at the Piet Zwart Institute explored whether interior design can give way to urban redevelopment. As part of last fall's [X]City studio, students proposed a spectrum of redevelopment strategies for the wharf, varying from commercial to artistic to recreational.</p> Screen/Print #6: MONU's "Greater Urbanism" Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-01-27T13:59:00-05:00 >2014-01-27T13:59:55-05:00 <img src="" width="514" height="690" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p><a href="" target="_blank"><em><strong>Screen/Print</strong></em></a><a href="" target="_blank"> </a>is an experiment in translation across media, featuring a close-up digital look at printed architectural writing.

Every IABR edition builds on earlier editions. We refocus, change perspective, pick up new elements; we re-use and reconfigure, and then we scramble and stir. Compared to most other Biennales, we&rsquo;re poor and small, so we have to be smart, not waste what we have, choose our battles, break rules, find shortcuts, work with good people, make friends and truly commit ourselves.&rdquo; - George Brugmans</em></p> <p> IABR, International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam is the most engaged urban Biennale in the world. Supported by the Dutch Government, the city of Rotterdam, the municipalities where the IABR runs test sites and the collaborators from NGO's, this urban biennale continues to discuss, engage, make, critique and invent solutions for pressing problems regarding the present and the future of the cities in this so called urban century with rapidly growing megalopolises and populations.<br> IABR holds that when we would all be living in better-made citie...</p> In Focus: Ossip van Duivenbode Archinect 2012-01-18T19:42:00-05:00 >2012-01-23T19:57:49-05:00 <img src="" width="650" height="433" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <em>In Focus</em> is Archinect's series of features dedicated to profiling the photographers who help make the work of architects look that much better. What has attracted them to architecture? How do they work? What type of equipment do they use?
