On the 13th of May 2006, Island6 Arts Center will host the first Platform for Urban Investigation, a nomadic research facility that will be held in different location around the world: Paris in June, Amsterdam in August, October in Rio and Sao Paulo.

Architects, urbanists, choreographers, dancers, visual artists, musicians, writers, philosophers and curators will be invited to participate in this research.
