ARTKITEKTURA 2017 is delighted to present the International Exhibition on Living Architecture, a highly visual exhibition tracing the journey of living architecture from the pioneers of organic architecture, to the enlivening of modernism, to contemporary worldwide expressions, provoking questions about its current and future significance in this age of digitally driven design.  

Curated by Pieter van der Ree and commissioned by Iona Stichting foundation based in the Netherlands, this rare exhibition tours the English speaking world for the first time, launching in Manila at Ayala Museum in August 2017.

Talks, panel discussions and conversations with the public will be given by Filipino and international experts from Australia, Colombia, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
