Proactive Practice examined how architects self-initiate projects to nurture vibrant and adaptive communities.

As speculative development and fast-paced growth transform urban space, architects must not be complacent in service to the market economy. How can we practice architecture as caretakers for our communities and reclaim an active role in the production of space?

Through the lens of five architects’ practices and their progressive work, different models and scales of intervention were presented to encourage us to question the malleability of our environment. This exhibition served as a call for all creative disciplines to engage as activists in the search for new urban potentialities.
