Excerpt from the curator’s statement: Sustainable urban development is a global issue. Not only in the geographical sense, whereby we all depend on the same resources and are affected by the same pollution, but also in the professional sense in that no single discipline can solve these problems alone. Thus, sustainable urban development must be thought out in collaboration between various peoples and disciplines.

Excerpt from the introduction: ”99 is not a presentation of architecture in the usual sense. Nor is it a display of a specific style, theory or ism, defining itself by distancing itself from standard architecture.
