With A Better World - Another Power (part of the 2007 Rotterdam Architectural Biennale) the Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAI) presents the power and potential of an architecture that chooses to make the opinions of its most important users in the city, the residents, count once more. The exhibition shows the work of groups of architects and artists who, in their practice, are not interested in defining just the form of a building, but rather in stimulating collective processes, spontaneous creativity and activism in order to incite a new political role for architecture.

With their work Jeanne van Heeswijk and Dennis Kaspori stimulate social change through collective design practises. They strongly encourage a critical attitude toward our built environment. With 'Fields of (inter)action, models for collective change' they presented five projects on urban transformation in the form of a life size pop-up book two-metres tall designed by Roger Teeuwen. For the first time the projects 'Will o the whisp', 'Face Your World', 'Care-Taker', 'De Strip' and 'The Blue House' are presented next to each other in order to give insight in the aims, methodologies and working methods of Van Heeswijk and Kaspori. The work's playful and interactive design stimulates visitors of the exhibition to open windows to explore the projects or to pull on something in order to change the scenario.
