The first in the Solution series where authors are asked to develop an abundance of compact and original ideas for other countries and regions.
Solution 9: The Great Pyramid is the first in the forthcoming Solution series where authors will be asked to develop an abundance of compact and original ideas for other countries and regions, contradicting the widely held assumption that, after the end of socialism, human advancement is only possible technologically or requires a yet-to-be-established world order. This book also documents the architectural proposals for the Great Pyramid (www.thegreatpyramid.org), selected by a jury composed of Rem Koolhaas, Omar Akbar, Stefano Boeri, and Miuccia Prada. It also contains critical texts and voices from the press on this exceptional project.
The Great Pyramid has been selected as one of the projects to be exhibited at the 2008 Venice Architectural Biennale's German Pavilion. Under the title “Updating Germany,” commissioners Matthias Böttger and Friedrich von Borries of raumtaktik are collecting steps towards a better future with ecologically and sociall sustainable projects.
