The exhibition investigates the increasing role of platform urbanism in the development of our cities and in discarding old orders and structures. Today digital platforms as Facebook, Google and Amazon permeate all aspects of our lives. The pavilion it selfs will be transformed into a platform for active critical engagement with the future of architecture.
