An exhibition exploring the results of the performance ephemeral botanical urban landscape a performative method towards resilience and adaptable public spaces.

Botanic Maracaibo, presents the results from the Ephemeral Botanical Urban Landscape, a side event to the UNESCO’s Our Common Future Conference held in Paris on 2015 and a labeled COP21 project. The exhibition reflects on the on site performances developed in Paris and Maracaibo, as well as the larger research on the Botanical Garden of Maracaibo, Venezuela, which was conceived in 1983 as a Garden School for the preservation of the Tropical Dry Forest and as the First School of Horticulture in Latin America, by Roberto Burle Marx and Leandro Aristeguieta.

The two on-site learning experiences attracted around 150 participants. The Paris Workshop took place at the Place Jussieu, as a perfect middle point between the University Campus Pierre et Marie Curie and the Jardins des Plantes. This location was meant to serve as a strong metaphor for a relevant encounter between educational and botanical landscapes of learning, preservation and dissemination. The Paris performance shared the same methodological structure with the performance in Maracaibo, it was structured in five simple steps: Discover, Plant, Grow, Be and Reproduce. The video exhibition explains how the on site learning experiences can offer instant information that may influence the design process and policy making mechanisms to adapt public spaces to the new climate challanges, thus the way the sites may look and perform over time.

The invitation is to join us for an opening night exhibition in the Lower Chamber at the Centro Bellas Artes of Maracaibo, Venezuela, on Thursday, November 26, at 7:30 pm, with free admission.
