The exhibition focuses on the coexistence of plants, animals and humans in relation to our built environment: How can construction respond to the long-term changes in the life cycles of buildings and open spaces? How must the cultural practice of planning be modified in order to do justice to the habitats of plants and animals? And what role do local conditions and different time horizons play?

The works of the three offices involved in the exhibition show how interdisciplinary research and practice can provide the basis, methods and planning tools for the successful integration of biodiversity into the planning and design of urban spaces.

The exhibition project HABITAT X in the Architekturgalerie am Weißenhof as well as the HABITAT, a multi-year, performative presentation space on the disturbed coexistence of plants, animals and humans by the Bureau Baubotanik at the Kunstvereni Wagenhalle are spotlights of the IBA'27 Festival #1, which will take place from 23.
