We are delighted to welcome Venezuelan architect and artist Alejandro Haiek from LabProFab for an evening presentation at the White Building in Hackney Wick.

Alejandro - alongside diverse arts groups, urban activists and grassroots movements - created The Public Machinery project: a series of social artifacts and cultural infrastructures. This was conceived as participatory, political and economic reengineering with a bottom-up approach focused on the democratisation of the urban soil and the renewal and resuscitation of inactive and non-regulated landscapes in Caracas favelas.

Alejandro Haiek works between the fields of art, architecture and activism. He is professor at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism, Central University of Venezuela, and founder of LabProFab.

Join us for an informal talk with some drinks at the White Building in Hackney Wick.
