alphaville festival 2010

Friday 17 September, the alphaville festival running for 2 days debuted, the first day in Whitechapel Gallery and the next day in a venue "Rich Mix". The theme for this year's festival was "visionary cities".

'Our cities are in crisis and their futures depend on architects and urbanists who are willing to look beyond today’s realities to drive the direction for our increasingly urban world. Contemporary city design is full of obstacles standing in the way of visionary thinking. It is time for us to take a position on how we want to live in the future…it is time for a visionary city'. (from the book “Visionary Cities” by The Why Factory, 2009).

I wouldn't be able to describe here all the festival related events, it might come back in a later stage, instead I will be posting some of the enjoyable material.

That was the nicely worked teaser of the festival, it's worth mentioning that this is the 2nd year this festival takes place.
