03/12/2013Welcome to the Grand Opening Ceremony

 

INVITATION

Dear friends and colleagues,

On behalf of the Bi-city Biennale Urbanism\Architecture Shenzhen organization committee and creative team, it’s my pleasure to extend to you this invitation to attend the Grand Opening Ceremony on December 6, at 15:15 pm. You are also very welcome to join the opening weekend on December 7/8. Please find the full program below.

The event will take place at the Value Factory, main venue of the Biennale, located at the heart of the Shekou Industry Park in Shenzhen.

A place to experience pure architecture
A place to inspire bold plans for the future
A place to create value for our time

The Value Factory succeeds the Guangdong Float Glass Factory. From industry to culture, from mass production to value creation. The building will be the main protagonist of this message.

The Value Factory synthesizes more than a dozen roles to shape a unique new institution to celebrate architecture in its broadest sense. It combines a manifesto hall, silo adventure, urban beacon, chapel, panorama deck, museum, event platform, urban farm, design & consultancy studio, academy, education centre, think tank, exhibition facility, workshops, shop, bar and restaurants. And that’s only in its default setting. 

But there is more. It will feature about 20 world renowned institutions to reflect and act upon this big shift: MoMA, V&A, Maxxi, MIT, Droog, OMA, Mies van de Rohe foundation, Hong Kong University, International New Town Institute, The New Institute, Fringe Festival, Riptide, Shenzhen Design Centre, The Berlage, Volume Magazine, Sao Paulo Bienal, Museum of Finnish Architecture, Chinese University of Hong Kong,  Studio X, Fatbird Theatre, Y-space and still counting.

For opening tickets please send a message to: thevaluefactory@gmail.com before December 3rd.

Yours, 

Ole Bouman
Creative director
