How are people living after the floods of July 2021? What is the historical and geographical context of the Meuse, Ourthe and Vesdre valleys? What architectural, urban planning and landscape design approaches could respond to this specific context?
At the heart of its Fluctuations event, the ICA is presenting a thematic exhibition in a new space in Feronstrée, Liège, offering possible answers to these questions.
The exhibition brings together spatial strategies for reconciling the river and its inhabitants, expressed in the form of photographs, large-format graphic documents, texts, videos and models from international and local approaches. They are the result of commissions from Imagine magazine, G.A.R. Archives d'architecture, Rotor, the ULiège Task Force, urban planners Lucile Barcelo & Alban-Valérian Dumont, landscape architect Frédéric Rossano and the architecture, urban planning and landscape firms Baumans-Deffet & Agence TER, Martiat-Durnez, Studio Paola Viganò and Taktyk. These approaches, as much documentary as sensitive, historical as prospective, landscape as architectural, contribute to the reflection on how to reduce the vulnerability of people and the built environment in flood plains, and learn how to better cohabit with the fluctuations of water.
This exhibition will host workshops to raise awareness of these issues and guided tours open to all
