On Thursday June 16 2011 director Mirko Zardini and Phyllis Lambert (founding mother of the CCA) opened the exhibition ‘The Good Cause, Architecture of Peace’ at the CCA. Some 300 people attended the opening and visited the show curated by Saskia van Stein (NAI), Arjen Oosterman and Lilet Breddels (Archis).
The Good Cause shows the thin line between an architecture of war and an architecture of peace. It shows the complexities of a post-conflict resolution but also gives clues how architecture can contribute to a sustainable peace. The exhibition can be seen as an installment in a longterm project with the aim to better the way the world deals with international peace keeping and reconstruction.
