At the 18th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, NEOM has unveiled the “Zero Gravity Urbanism- Principles for a New Livability” exhibition to present the concept and standards guiding the design of the Line, their proposed 170-kilometer-long linear city in north-west Saudi Arabia.
The event aims to introduce to the public an alternative vision for urban planning whose compact configuration strives to become a model for the development of more efficient and sustainable cities. Prior to the opening of the exhibition, more than 20 internationally recognized architects and designers joined the design team, including Sir Peter Cook, Massimiliano Fuksas, Jean Nouvel, and Ben van Berkel.
The exhibition is open from 20 May to 24 September 2023 at Abbazia di San Gregorio, Venice.
The exhibition also hosts a series of public events, talks, and debates featuring renowned architects, academics, and urban thinkers. The agenda for upcoming events include conversations with Reiner de Graaf on the ways in which language shapes urbanism, Adrian McGregor, Winka Dubbeldam & Martin Rein-Cano on social cohesion and climate resilience, and Daniel Ibañez & Felipe Correa on novel ways of living.
