A unique exhibition will open in New York next Thursday, 20 February. The ‘Countryside - The Future’ exhibition by Rem Koolhaas is entirely devoted to the solutions that the countryside can offer the world, in which Dutch horticulture is included as an important player.
Architect and urban planner Rem Koolhaas wants the exhibition to show that the countryside can provide potential answers to major societal challenges. ‘Countryside’ features issues such as climate change, migration and evolution that will shape the future of our planet. The exhibition zooms in on various aspects of the countryside that offer solutions. Dutch horticulture is thereby representing the topic of food and food production.
Various Dutch horticultural businesses and suppliers have joined forces in order to highlight our sector’s essential contribution to our planet. They are showing how our technology-based sector makes an important contribution by utilising the power of nature and offers solutions to societal challenges such as energy, water, sustainability, food supply and food safety.
