Venedigbiennalen 2016: Book Launch & Discussion — “Tabula Plena: Forms of Urban Preservation”

Book launch and discussion held in the Nordic Pavilion amphitheatre on the 27th May 2016 (15th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia) with author Bryony Roberts, Erik Langdalen and Lars Müller Publishers, plus contributors Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli, Thordis Arrhenius and Christian Parreno.
“In contrast to tabula rasa urbanism, this book considers strategies for tabula plena – urban sites that are full of existing buildings of multiple time periods. The book grew from a collaboration between the Oslo School of Architecture and Design and Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation on the planning of the government quarter in Oslo. Emerging from this process, the book asks larger questions about how we practice, teach, and theorize engagement with existing architecture on an urban scale.”
