Dynamics of Time
The third iteration of an exhibition of the work of architect Cedric Price and the first public appearance of his selected projects in the Netherlands was presented by Bureau Europa / the Netherlands Architecture Institute Maastricht (NAi) between 13 December 2014 and 22 March 2015.
CEDRIC PRICE: The Dynamics of Time introduced the work of Price by presenting a cross-section of the elements of his inventive and singular practice: sketches, project drawings, recorded talks, first-hand accounts by staff, colleagues and friends. A series of selected projects displayed his innovative models for industry, education, government, tourism, ecology and the house.
The selection of projects was made on the basis of their specific relevance to current spatial, economic and social issues of the Meuse-Rhine Euregion, a cross-border region that currently faces a number of challenges that are typical for post-industrial areas, such as a declining economy and the shrinking and aging of its population. Local initiatives, such as IBA Parkstad, aim to ‘update’ the region and to help it to regain confidence, – a key ingredient for economic and social redevelopment. It is this aspiration to reinvent a region that provided the impetus to show the work of CP.
