Focus on the City on Cultura24

Documentary 'Lagos/Koolhaas'

Inspired by ‘Making City’ of the 5th IABR, Cultura24, the digital theme channel of the Dutch public broadcasting channels, will be devoting a week to exploring the world of metropolitan architecture.

It will feature programs covering the urge for high-rise architecture, the development of the city of Amsterdam after World War II, architect Rem Koolhaas’ exploration of the urban dynamic in Nigeria and a visit to young architects Alfredo Brillembourg and Hubert Klumpner in the slums of the Venezuelan capital Carácas. The complexities and issues of urban development will be covered in all their diversity.
