More than half of the world’s population is living in cities. Post-Oil City is an international planning and landscape architecture exhibit which originated in Germany. Innovative projects in Asia, Africa, and America address urgent questions: How will the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy affect the process of urban planning and the city? How will the use of renewable energies affect urban metabolism and the politics of sustainability and mobility?

The exhibition’s subtitle – 'The History of the City’s Future' – indicates that visions for the future are connected with experiences from the past. Nine paradigms of traditional climate-sensitive construction from the past are on display alongside models, computer animations and video clips from 11 current projects in the field of sustainable urban planning.

Exhibition hours: M-F 9:30 am – 7 pm; Saturday 9:30 am – 3 pm

Opening remarks: Ursula Seiler-Albring, President, ifa & Karlfried Bergner, Minister, German Embassy
