The Aedes Network Campus Berlin, ANCB, is a unique "Metropolitan Laboratory" focussing on the future of our cities. After three decades of exhibiting, publishing and convening some of the world’s most internationally acclaimed and pioneering architects, Aedes have opened their doors to researchers and students from all around the world.
Since its inception, Aedes have attracted regular contributions from international practices and universities, building a strong and ever growing global network. It is from these foundations that ANCB positions itself as the hub at the centre of an extensive international research network, based on a structure of cultural exchange and knowledge transfer. Partnering with some of the most highly regarded institutions and universities worldwide, ANCB provides a trans-disciplinary laboratory environment in which the likes of architects, planners, economists, philosophers, scientists, artistis, engineers and ecologists come together to tackle the key issues facing our globalised urban environments.
