6th Tallinn Architecture Biennale (TAB) 2022
is titled “Edible; Or, The Architecture of Metabolism
”, which approaches the word “food” both literally and metaphorically. On the one hand,
explores architectural strategies of local production and self-sufficiency, and on the other, operations that use by-products of urban life, replacing the traditional linear systems of “make, use and dispose” with circular systems that aim to limit material and resource loss.
Main curators Lydia Kallipoliti
(USA/ Greece) ja Areti Markopoulou
(Spain/ Greece) wish the exhibition would transfer the notion of metabolism – growth, decay, digestion, and nutrient release – from the natural world to the domain of cities and buildings. The main objective is to reimagine planetary food systems along with architecture’s capacity to perform metabolic processes.
Participants in the Curatorial Exhibition will be gathered in five thematic groups: Metabolic Home, From Brick to Soil, Food and Geopolitics, the Archaeology of Architecture and Food Systems and the Future Food Deal. The exhibition
“Edible" at Estonian Museum of Architecture is open until November 20.
TAB 2022 is chosen as one of the TOP architecture events of 2022 by
