SABA at "Uneven Growth: Tactical Urbanisms for Expanding Megacities", Museum of Modern Art, New York

"In 2030, the world’s population will be a staggering eight billion people. Of these, two-thirds will live in cities. Most will be poor. With limited resources, this uneven growth will be one of the greatest challenges faced by societies across the globe. Over the next years, city authorities, urban planners, designers, economists, and many others will have to join forces to ensure these expanding urban enclaves remain habitable.
Uneven Growth, the latest exhibition in MoMA’s Issues in Contemporary Architecture series (which also includes Foreclosed and Rising Currents), addresses this increasingly inequitable urban development.
In conjunction with the exhibition, this online platform welcomes the public around the world to submit examples of "tactical urbanisms"—temporary, bottom-up interventions that aim to make cities more livable and participatory.
In the scope of the exhibition, six interdisciplinary teams of researchers and practitioners were brought together to examine new architectural possibilities for six megacities: Hong Kong, Istanbul, Lagos, Mumbai, New York City, and Rio de Janeiro. Challenging assumed relationships between formal and informal, bottom-up and top-down urban development, the resulting design scenarios, developed over a 14-month initiative, consider how emergent forms of tactical urbanism can respond to alterations in the nature of public space, housing, mobility, the environment, and other major issues of near-future urbanization." (source:

SABA Halvad project is GOING PUBLIC

Our SABA 2011 Halvad project features in a new book edited by R. Klanten, S. Ehmann, S. Borges and L. Feireiss, published by Gestalten in Berlin.
The book, titled Going Public: Public Architecture, Urbanism and Interventions - the creative revival of public space "showcases the creative revival of public space in our urban and rural landscapes. The book’s compelling selection of formal and informal interventions, reclamations, and architecture illustrates the current scope and interest in refashioning and repurposing our built environment for public use. The objectives of the featured examples are as diverse as the projects themselves and range from inspiring communication and community experience to devising new means of gathering in and connecting to nature."
