The Cultural Affairs Bureau (IC) is calling for proposals for the Macau Pavilion that will be set up at the eighth Biennale of Urbanism and Architecture of Shenzhen and Hong Kong.
Dedicated to the theme “Urban Interactions”, this year’s Bi-city Biennale will take place in December at Futian Railway Station in Shenzhen and surrounding areas.
The exhibition will consist of two sections, “Eyes of the City” and “Ascending City,” exploring the relationship between urban space and technological innovation from different perspectives.
At the same time, several sub-venues will be set up in other districts of the city to interconnect with the main venue, completing an organically interactive network throughout the city.
According to information released by the Biennale organizers, a smart city platform will be built to showcase the possibility of producing brand-new interactive modes through the integration of digital and physical spaces, study the reconciliation between nature and cities driven by technology, and profoundly tap into the big data applied to cities.
“Through its participation in this year’s Bi-
city Biennale, the IC intends to strengthen cooperation between Macau and Shenzhen, to promote cultural exchange between Macau and the outside world,” the bureau said in a statement.
The deadline for proposal applications is September 6. LV
