‘…IABR2014URBAN BY NATURE– claims that we can only solve the world’s envi­ron­men­tal prob­lems if we solve the prob­lems of the city. With the use of new strate­gies that effec­tively address the city as the big­ger urban land­scape that it is, we can truly con­tribute to a more resilient urban world…’’

Con­tracted by IABR and the Munic­i­pal­ity of Texel, Faro worked together with La4sale for a year on the Planet Texel project work­shop. The result can be seen through­out the sum­mer as part of the Urban By Nature exhi­bi­tion in Rot­ter­dam Kun­sthal. The exhi­bi­tion had its fes­tive open­ing last Wednesday.

Planet Texel stands for Tourism, Ecol­ogy X Econ­omy Land­scape (X= sus­tain­abil­ity). A kind of mov­ing Mes­dag panorama demon­strated how the seven Texel Prin­ci­ples, a Texel Tool­box and a series of Views will pre­pare Texel for a new future. Texel has great ambi­tions and aims to be a sus­tain­able energy and new saline cul­ti­va­tion pio­neer. Texel as test­ing ground for the entire planet: test it on Texel.
