In order to grow healthy, energy efficient and climate change adaptable cities, we need uninhibited imagination, a set of good practices, and above all – scientific knowledge, which would give us the basis for effective action.

In Experimentarium, we will learn the principles of proper composting, creating private seed banks for your favourite plants, and hydroponic crops cultivation. We will draw inspiration for sustainable design from the world of nature, by studying the behaviours of slime molds, bees and ants. Together, we will also think about using bioluminescence to light our cities and the cultivation of algae and fungi to produce energy, food, or even building materials. We will present works devoted to urban wetlands and water architecture, an innovative design of a spherical wind turbine, as well as bold architectural ideas, e.g. an ultra-thin net which harvests energy from the sun and allows insects to move safely above motorways. There will also be many artistic projects, which speculate about the future (among others, Nature of/for Living by Jarosław Kozakiewicz.)
