SCARCITY IN EXCESS
Workshop and publication on the city of Reykjavik after the economic crisis.
This workshop was organized by the University of Reykjavik and the IUAV of Venice in 2012. It resulted in a publication: Scarcity in excess, Actar editions, Barcelona, 2014. After an extraordinary period of growth, the Icelandic economy collapses sharply in October 2008 and takes the country into an unprecedented crisis. After a vote by referendum, the country declares itself insolvent and its currency is strongly devalued. This publication focuses on the relationship between the globalized economy and the environment built through the Icelandic example. It aspires to demonstrate that development strategies based on a long-term sustainable economic vision are possible.
