Dialog:City is an arts and cultural event that catalyzes civic discourse by inviting internationally renowned artists and designers to create participatory, interactive, and dialogical site-specific works in neighborhoods across the city of Denver for citizens and audiences of the greater Denver region. From political Karaoke, digital projections of Veteran stories from a Humvee, and a technology hip-hop opera on the climate impact on Antarctica - Dialog:City is a cutting-edge convergence of art and public life.

Inspired on the occasion of the City of Denver hosting the Democratic National Convention, Dialog:City is a non-partisan creative and civic catalyst whose mission is to spark dialogue across the city through innovative cultural initiatives.

Mass Studies was invited to participate, and our project Air Forest is on display during the event for the public to enjoy.

Dialog:City exhibitions are open to the public over the week of August 21 to August 29th.

The fourth edition of New Trends of Architecture will be launched at the University of Patras Conference and Cultural Center in Patras, Greece, European Capital of Culture 2006, on June 2, 2006 . Greece is the country where the European Capital of Culture scheme was invented in 1985 by Melina Mercouri, the then Minister of Culture in Greece with a dream to foster deeper knowledge of the differences and similarities of European cultures among the EU member states, using the language of Culture.

For this edition, Winy Maas (MVRDV) and Riken Yamamoto act as the Commissioners and selected 16 promising architects from Europe and Asia-Pacific.
The theme of this edition is “AGENDA”. The two commissioners translated the word ‘trend’ by the relation architecture might have with society, and required the participating architects to respond to this theme.
In Patras, the two commissioners and the architects will all gather and exchange theirs ideas on “AGENDA” at the symposium on June 3. The English-Greek full color catalogue of 140 pages, including the texts by the Commissioners and the projects by the 16 architects, is published.

The exhibition is travelling to European and Asia-Pacific cities, including:
